Report: Burgas Bomb Parts were Smuggled in from Poland

The detonator and remote control used in a Bulgarian bomb attack that killed five Israelis and their Bulgarian driver last year were smuggled in from Poland, according to Agence France Presse. Citing a report in Bulgaria's Trud daily, AFP said that the still unidentified bomber and two accomplices smuggled in the components on a train from Warsaw 20 days before the attack, according to investigators.

The July 2012 bombing on an airport bus in the Black Sea resort of Burgas was blamed on Lebanese terror group Hizbullah. The bomber, whose device appeared to have been triggered from afar, was also killed. Trud said one of his suspected accomplices, Lebanese-born Australian national Meliad Farah, was the man who assembled the bomb once in Bulgaria.
