Bulgaria Knows Identities of Burgas Bombing Suspects

SOFIA, Bulgaria (AP) — The identities and whereabouts of three of the four suspects that were behind a bus attack that killed five Israeli tourists in Bulgaria last year have been established, a senior police official said Wednesday.

Stanimir Florov, head of an anti-terror unit, said that the three suspects were based in the same country, but due to the ongoing investigation he did not provide further details.

“Bulgaria will request assistance from the country in question,” Florov told the TV7 channel.

The bomb exploded as the Israeli tourists were on their way from the airport to their seaside hotel. The blast also killed a Bulgarian bus driver and the suspected bomber.

Florov said that the bomb was likely planned to explode while the bus was in motion, but “the terrorists committed a mistake.”
