Burgas Anniversary: Bulgaria Urges EU to Blacklist Hizbullah

Bulgaria on Thursday commemorated the one-year anniversary of a deadly attack on an Israeli tourist bus on its soil and called for sanctions against Hizbullah, which is widely suspected of being behind the bombing.

Meanwhile, Lebanon has asked the European Union not to place Hizbullah on the list of terrorist groups – but if the EU decides to do so nonetheless, it will be in large part because of the Burgas bombing.
