Israeli Bus Explodes in Bulgaria

Israel’s Foreign Minister says the deadly bus explosion in Bulgaria that has killed at least six people was caused by a bomb placed on the vehicle.

Avigdor Lieberman says he was briefed by his Bulgarian counterpart Wednesday evening. He said seven people died, but Bulgarian authorities have placed the death toll at six.

At least 32 people were wounded in the blast, which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called “an Iranian terror attack.”

The bus was in a parking lot at the local airport, where the Israeli tourists had apparently just landed. An Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman says the tourists were apparently boarding the buses to go to their hotels when the blast took place.

Netanyahu noted that the attack followed similar attacks or attempts in India, Georgia, Thailand, Kenya and Cyprus in recent months. And he said that once again, “all signs point to Iran,” though he offered no evidence to back up the claim.

OBAMA BEMOANS “BARBARIC” ATTACK IN BULGARIA

President Barack Obama is strongly condemning a “barbaric terrorist attack” against Israeli tourists in Bulgaria.

Obama says his thoughts and prayers are with the families of those killed and injured, and he calls the attacks against innocent civilians “completely outrageous.” He says the U.S. will stand with its allies and work to “identify and bring to justice the perpetrators of this attack.”

Obama says the U.S. reaffirms its “unshakeable commitment to Israel’s security.”

Israel has blamed Iran for the deadly blast in the Black Sea city of Burgas, Bulgaria, that killed at least six people and injured at least 32 others.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says she was “deeply saddened and angered” to learn of the attacks.
