Iran main suspect in Bulgaria blast


A suicide bomber carried out the attack that killed seven people in a bus transporting Israeli tourists in Bulgaria, the country’s interior minister said on Friday, and Israel accused Iranian-backed Hezbollah militants of responsibility. Five of the dead were Israelis.


Video surveillance in front of the airport and the investigation showed the bomber could not be distinguished among arriving Israeli tourists, interior minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov said at the airport of Burgas, on Bulgaria’s Black Sea coast.


“We have established there was a person who was a suicide bomber in this attack (on Wednesday). This person had a  fake driving licence from the United States,” Tsvetanov said.


“He looked like anyone else - a normal person with Bermuda shorts and a backpack,” he said.


Special forces had managed to obtain DNA samples from the fingers of the bomber and were now checking databases to identify him.
