Bulgarian authorities investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a Palestinian fugitive wanted by Israel said on Saturday that there were no signs of gunshots on his body.

Omar Nayef Zayed, a Palestinian fugitive who had taken refuge at the Palestinian Authority's embassy in Sofia, has been found dead at the PA's embassy in the Bulgarian capital on Thursday.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas ordered an investigation into what he called Zayed's assassination.

Zayed, 52, escaped from Israeli custody over 25 years ago after being convicted of murdering an Israeli yeshiva student in 1986.
