A computer-generated image of the suicide bomber who killed five Israeli tourists and a local bus driver in mid-July, has been verified to a level of 95 percent accuracy, the Bulgarian Interior Minister said on Wednesday according to the Bulgarian Sofia News Agency.

"The badly damaged face of the bomber was reconstructed thanks to modern technology, supplied to Bulgaria by partner services," Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov informed the press, the report said.

"The police did not release any earlier photos of the bomber, who was decapitated in the explosion, as they would have shocked the public," he added, according to the report.

The Bulgarian Interior Ministry had released the suspect's photograph earlier on Wednesday.
