Bulgaria’s chief prosecutor  Sotir Tsatsarov said on Friday that the authorities transferred the investigation of the terror attack on an Israeli bus to Burgas; the  Black Sea resort which was the location of the 2012 attack resulting in the deaths of five Israelis and their Bulgarian bus driver.

Tsatsarov said again on Friday the identity of the third suspect—the alleged bomber who died during the terrorist attack on Israelis tourists--- has been revealed.  In February, Tsatsarov said the authorities identified a third suspect.

Bulgaria’s government says two Hezbollah members are wanted as suspects for the attack. Both Hezbollah members are in Lebanon and have been identified. Bulgaria has filed extradition requests to the Lebanese government.
