Bulgarisk press pekar ut den svenske före detta Guantanamofången Mehdi Ghezali som den självmordsbombare som på onsdagen sprängde en buss full med israeliska turister i Burgas.
The Times of Israel rapporterar:
Bulgarian media on Thursday named the suicide bomber who blew up a bus full of Israeli tourists, killing five Israelis and a local bus driver, in the Black Sea resort of Burgas on Wednesday as Mehdi Ghezali.
There was no independent confirmation of the veracity of the information. The reports surfaced soon after Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had publicly accused Hezbollah, directed by Iran, of responsibility for the bombing. The Prime Minister’s Office made no comment on the reports.Uppdatering:
The Bulgarian reports, rapidly picked up by Hebrew media, posited various versions of how the bomber had detonated the bomb, including the suggestion that the bomber had not intended to die in the blast, but may have wanted to place the bomb on the bus and flee.
Svenska Säkerhetspolisen dementerar uppgifterna.
