No Mention of Hizbullah in Ashton's Response to Report,

In a statement regarding an investigation by Bulgarian authorities into what they discovered was a terrorist attack organized by Hizbullah that killed five Israeli tourists in Burgas in July, EU Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton made no mention of the Lebanese terror organization, saying instead that "reflection" and "serious assessment" were needed. 

Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, Ashton said, "We have to reflect on the consequences, we have to consult and come back."
