BERLIN – Bulgaria’s interior minister told European Union leaders last week that Hezbollah had played a role in the July suicide bombing of an Israeli tour bus, according to a report Tuesday in pan-Arab paper Al-Hayat.

The bombing in the Bulgarian seaside resort of Burgas resulted in the deaths of five Israelis and a Bulgarian bus driver.

The London-based paper cited an unnamed “European source” who stated that Bulgarian Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov had briefed fellow European interior ministers at a confidential Thursday meeting.
