BRUSSELS - Bulgaria will provide more evidence Hezbollah planned an attack that killed five Israelis, in a move it said on Wednesday should convince European Union countries to put the Islamist group on its terrorist list.

Bulgaria accused the Lebanese militant movement on Feb. 5 of carrying out a bomb attack on a bus in the Black Sea city of Burgas that killed the Israelis and their Bulgarian driver last July.

Diplomat Marin Raikov, appointed interim prime minister pending elections in May, said Wednesday that some EU countries were "not sufficiently convinced" by Bulgaria's evidence.

"For Bulgaria it is of key importance to have a common position, to have a consensus on this (within the EU)," he told reporters during a visit to NATO headquarters.

"We will continue the investigation. We will continue to work on this very seriously, very actively. We will provide the needed evidence," he said.
