Bulgaria President: No Advance Intelligence by Mossad on Attack
Bulgarian authorities had a meeting with Israel's intelligence service Mossad a month ago, but there was no warning of an expected attack, the president has said.
President Rosen Plevneliev, who rushed to the site of what is widely considered to be a terrorist act, stressed that Bulgarian authorities have taken all appropriate measures for the life of the victims.
According to him Bulgaria authorities have good communication with the services of Israel and they would have acted seriously if there was advance intelligence about such an attack.
"That attack does not mean that Bulgaria is a risky destination for tourism," Rosen Plevneliev said.

I think that finding a bomb on a coachload of Israeli tourists heading for a resort in January may have just been classed as a sign ?
Also the warnings from Danny Shenar may have also been a subtle hint.... "According to a January article in Haaretz, the Transportation Ministry of Israel warned of a forthcoming attack against Israelis in Bulgaria.
“I asked to formally tighten security (in Bulgaria) because I am worried about a security-related incident,” said Danny Shenar, chief of security at the Transportation Ministry. Shenar reportedly asked European security services “to tighten security around groups of Israelis in various resorts and hotels.”
