A report on Hezbollah-run Al-Manar television cited a European sources as saying the EU's decision was based on a "cause of formality" in response to the terrorist attack last year in Burgas that killed five Israeli tourist and the Bulgarian bus driver. Hezbollah has maintained denial of responsibility for the Burgas attack, and blamed Western powers for using the bombing as fuel for labeling Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.
