Bulgaria has delayed the trial of Hezbollah terrorists suspected of the July 2012 attack at Burgas Airport against an Israeli tourist bus, which killed five Israelis and a Bulgarian, and injured 30.

The trial was delayed due to the absence of Israelis affected by the attack, and was pushed back to December 12, according to The Sofia Globe.Meliad Farah (35), a joint Australian-Lebanese citizen, and Hassan El Hajj Hassan (27), a Canadian man, face charges of terrorism and document fraud charges in connection with their assistance of Mohamad Hassan El-Husseini, who died in the explosion. The two are being tried in absentia.

Bulgaria and Israel cooperated to track down El-Husseini's associates involved with the attack.
