Bulgaria: Hizbullah, Iran Behind Burgas Attack


There is every indication that an official Bulgarian report on last summer's attack on Israelis in the Black Sea resort of Burgas says that Iran and Hizbullah were behind the attack. Five Israelis and a Bulgarian bus driver were killed in the suicide bombing.

With this in mind, sources say it is probable that the European Union will be forced to discuss the possibility of declaring Hizbullah a terror organization. It has refrained from doing so for fear of retaliation by Hizbullah and Iran.
