Report: Hizbullah Behind Burgas Bombing


Lebanese terror group Hizbullah was behind last summer's bombing in the Bulgarian resort of Burgas, which took the lives of five Israelis and their Bulgarian bus driver, according to a Thursday-evening report by Channel 2 Television. The report was based on information relayed to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and President Shim'on Peres by visiting Bulgarian Foreign Minister Nikolay Mladenov. Europol - the European Union's police arm, which helped the Bulgarian investigation - succeeded in identifying three of the four suspects in the case, adding that they entered Bulgaria under false identities two-and-a-half weeks before the incident. The full report is scheduled to be released in five days.
