BRUSSELS - Britain has formally asked the European Union to put the military wing of Islamist group Hezbollah on its list of terrorist organizations, an EU diplomat said on Tuesday.

Britain's move comes after Bulgaria accused the Lebanese militant movement on Feb. 5 of carrying out a bomb attack on a bus in the Black Sea city of Burgas that killed five Israelis and their Bulgarian driver in July last year.
