France is considering labeling Hezbollah a terrorist organizing, pending the results of a Bulgarian investigation into a terrorist attack in Burgas which killed five Israeli tourists, according to a report published Saturday by the An Nahar daily.

Last week, Bulgaria openly charged the Iranian-backed Hezbollah with having carried out the bus bombing. Deputy Hezbollah leader Naim Qassem responded that Israel was directing "allegations and incitements and accusations against Hezbollah" because it had failed to defeat it militarily.
