Bulgaria's Interior Ministry Downplays 'Terror Threat' Warning
There is no real threat to the life of citizens in the Bulgarian capital Sofia, the Interior Ministry's Chief Secretary, Georgi Kostov, has said.
Kostov has spoken to national media following reports - allegedly coming from the US Embassy but published by the US Department of State Consular Section's Facebook page - of a "possible threat" in the vicinity of a building known as Hotel Pliska.
Speaking for the Bulgarian National Radio, Kostov has assured no real threat was found after a police inspection.
The US Department of State's message referred to an "unspecified bus line" in the area. It came two days after the attacks in Brussels which claimed the lives of 31 people, injuring up to 300.
