European Council to Discuss Burgas Terror Probe
Last year's terror attack in Bulgaria's Black Sea city of Burgas will be discussed at the European Council meeting on Thursday, according to EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.
Bulgarian Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov stated Tuesday that Bulgarian investigators had "a well-founded assumption" that the perpetrators of the deadly attack belonged to the military formation of Hezbollah.
During a press conference on Thursday, Ashton confirmed that the Bulgarian terror probe will be discussed at the meeting, the Bulgarian Telegraph Agency says.
"We decisively condemn all acts of terror, regardless of where they are committed," she declared.
She added that the information provided by Bulgarian authorities will be carefully assessed.
Bulgaria's choice of whether to name Hezbollah as standing behind the Burgas bus bombing was seen as pivotal as to whether the EU will officially label Hezbollah a terrorist organization.
Israel has thrown the blame on Hezbollah right after the July 18, 2012 attack, a move followed later by the US.

Well very soon there is a choice to be made by all bulgarians. If bate Boiko seems to taste so sour in the mouth, than there is always the other option - "Don Sergey du Communist". And live long the Troina Koalizia Reloaded. It will be so beautiful after the new expectations fade away to the old well known feeding with crap 3 times a day. And than bivol.bg/galeria should be proclaimed a national site/newspaper as it was before with "Rabotnichesko Delo". I mean they might become very boring because no one wants to mud the waters with revelations about the past of the commy brothers, right? I personally failed to see anything horrifying in the data about bate Boiko, but you know there are always those puritans who think politicians worldwide should be as clean as the freshly fallen snow.
