Bulgaria bus bomber 'part of group'

  • The suicide bomber who killed six people in Bulgaria last week was part of a group of conspirators, according to Prime Minister Boiko Borisov.

    He revealed the group had arrived in Bulgaria a month prior to the attack but declined to support Israeli claims that Iran and Lebanese militant group Hezbollah had played a role.

    Five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver died in last Wednesday's bombing in Burgas on the Black Sea. Dozens of people were also wounded in the blast.

    The identity of the man who carried out the attack remains unclear.

    Borisov said authorities had shared fingerprints and DNA samples with other security services but no match had yet been found.
