LAST UPDATED: 02/05/2013 07:33
Bulgarian Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov is scheduled to release a
much-anticipated report in Sofia on Tuesday regarding who his country believes
is responsible for the July 18 terrorist attack in Burgas that killed five
Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver.
Details of the investigation
were shared with Israeli officials last month when Bulgarian Foreign Minister
Nikolai Mladenov paid a one-day surprise visit to Jerusalem, during which he met
with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres.
diplomatic official, who refused to comment on the report before it was
released, said that as a result of Mladenov’s visit, Israel “would not be
surprised” by the findings.
