Israel buries Bulgaria bomb blast victims


The five Israeli tourists killed in a suicide bus bombing in Bulgaria are being laid to rest after their bodies were flown home.
The first funeral, in the city of Petah Tiqwa, was that of Itzik Colangi, 28. His wife was badly injured in the blast.
Four months ago, the couple had their first child, a daughter, who did not accompany them on their trip to the resort city of Burgas where the attack took place.
Israel has accused Iranian-backed Hezbollah militants of carrying out Wednesday’s killings.
Tehran has denied any involvement.
Bulgarian investigators, helped by the FBI, CIA, Interpol and Israeli secret services are trying to identify the bomber.
Bulgaria has released CCTV pictures of its prime suspect. It insists the man who blew up the bus, killing five Israeli holidaymakers and their Bulgarian driver in Burgas airport’s car park, was not a Bulgarian national.
