Bulgaria’s Ministry of the Interior has created a computer image of a
suspect believed to be involved in the July terrorist bombing in
Burgas, Bulgaria. Terrorists targeted a bus carrying Israeli
tourists, murdering five Israelis and a local driver.
The picture shows a heavy-set man with a slightly dark complexion,
black hair and brown eyes, who may have been wearing glasses. He
carried a driver´s license and used various false names.
Bulgarian police believe the suicide bomber who died in the blast was
not acting alone. "There is evidence that this man is connected to
the terror action in the Burgas airport," the Bulgarian Interior
Ministry said in a statement. It asked the public for information
regarding the suspect.
An Israeli official source quoted recently in the New York Times said
Israeli intelligence has evidence that terrorists in Lebanon were
involved in the attack as well. There was a rise in the number of
telephone calls between Lebanon and Burgas in the two months that
preceded the attack, the source said, and an even more marked spike
in the three days that preceded the attack.
The Times said that Bulgarian intelligence´s investigation of the
attack has reached a dead end, and that the identity of the bomber or
his accomplices has not been established. (IsraelNationalNews © 2011
