Bulgaria has given the names of two suspects in July's Burgas bus bombing, in which 5 Israelis and a Bulgarian bus driver were killed, to Europol in hopes of uncovering more information about the planning and financing of the terror attack, Bulgaria's Sofia News Agency reported on Tuesday.

Last week, Bulgaria unveiled the findings of its probe into the attack, implicating "the military wing of Hezbollah" in being behind the bombing."I am happy that Europol has been closely involved in the investigation. This is an example of successful cooperation with Bulgarian services," stated Europol Director Rob Wainwright.

Bulgaria hoped that Europol could determine whether the suspects had been present in any European states prior to the Burgas attack.
