Israel blames Iran for fatal Bulgarian bus blast


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has blamed Iran for the bomb in Bulgaria that blew up a bus full of Israeli tourists.
Reports say an eighth body has been found. More than 30 people were injured.
The Bulgarian Interior Minister and Israeli sources say they believe a suicide bomber carried out the attack. Authorities say the suspect carried an American passport.
A group of 150 holidaymakers arrived at Burgas airport on Bulgaria’s Black Sea coast yesterday and boarded buses to transport them to their hotels.
Forty minutes later one of the buses blew up in an airport car park.
Netanyahu said that “all the signs point to Iran” and that it was the latest in a series of attacks against Israelis outside Israel.
Tel Aviv claims the killings followed others, carried out or attempted, in Cyprus, Georgia, India, Kenya and Thailand and vowed a strong response from Israel.
