US Urges EU Action After Hizbullah Blamed for Burgas Bombing


In the wake of a lengthy investigation by the Bulgarian government which revealed that the Lebanese Hizbullah terror organization was behind a July tour bus bombing in Burgas which targeted Israelis, the White House pressed Europe to finally take "proactive action" to stop the terror organization. "We call on our European partners as well as other members of the international community to take proactive action to uncover Hezbollah's infrastructure and disrupt the group's financing schemes and operational networks in order to prevent future attacks," John Brennan said.
