Bomb Blast In Bulgaria: 7 dead in suicide bombing on Israeli Tourist Bus in Burgas

A tourist bus carrying five Israeli tourist put into big blast as they were attacked by a suicide bomber in Bulgaria on Wednesday. The bomber was a lanky, long-haired man wearing a baseball cap and plaid shorts with a fake Michigan driver's license took the bus as a tourist passenger also died on the incident.

Based on the security camera the man was wandering in and out of the terminal before the blast incident happened. A DNA samples were carried to know the identity of the suicide bomber. Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borisov said the driver's license was retrieved but no data were found on the database in Michigan.

No groups claimed responsible for the attack that the Israel government pointed out that an Iranian backed Hezbollah is responsible to it. Israel has attributed a series of attacks on its citizens around the world in recent months to Iran, threatening to escalate a shadow war between the two arch-enemies.
The attack occurred shortly after the Israelis boarded a bus outside the airport in the Black Sea resort town of Burgas, a popular destination for Israeli tourists particularly for high school graduates before they are drafted into military service about 400 kilometers (250 miles) east of Sofia.
