Threat to Israeli Tourists in Bulgaria

Israel asked European authorities, Thursday, to increase security on Israeli tour groups at ski resorts and other hotels, with specific concern for Israelis in the Bulgarian capital, Sofia.

The security system attributes the threat to Lebanon's Hizbullah terror organization, which has blames Israel for the February 2008 death of arch terrorist Imad Mughniyeh, even though there is evidence that the car bomb that took his life in Damascus was part of a Syrian intrigue.
