One of the suspected organizers of last year's terror attack in Burgas was born in Lebanon and then immigrated to Canada with his parents, according to Canadian media.

The suspect and his family lived in British Columbia, National Post says. When his mother divorced, he left Vancouver and returned with her to Lebanon at age 12.

Since then, he has returned to Canada only twice to visit family, but he still carried a Canadian passport — which he allegedly used to enter Bulgaria last summer to help orchestrate the bombing on behalf of Hezbollah.

In the aftermath of the news that a Canadian passport holder was allegedly involved in the Bergas terror attack, Canadian Citizenship and Immigration Minister Jason Kenney has suggested new legislation may be needed to revoke the citizenship of dual nationals who commit terrorism.

Two weeks ago, Algerian authorities stated that two Canadian were natiponals were involved in a siege at a gas plant that left 38 workers dead.
