Bulgarian President: Too Early to Name Burgas Group


President Rosen Plevneliev of Bulgaria said, Monday, that his country's intelligence services have made a lot of progress in their investigation of last summer's attack in Burgas, which killed five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver. Interviewed by Kol Yisrael government radio during a visit to Paris, Plevneliev said it was too early to indicate which terror organization carried out the attack, the moment there is enough evidence to present in court, there will be no cover-up.

Last week, Bulgarian Foreign Minister Nikolay Mladenov reportedly told Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that Lebanese terror group Hizbullah was behind the suicide bombing.
