Bulgaria: Today's Quote: Boyko Borisov Bulgaria's Prime Minister Boyko Borisov. File photo, BGNES

"You are such interesting people. Given that the are two times more tourists [than air force members] coming just 50-60 km from here... Are they going to bomb their own tourists? Stop pressuring the state in this outrageous way!"

Bulgarian's Prime Minister Boyko Borisov reacts to a journalist's question when asked whether the upgraded Bezmer Airport, reopened on Sunday and used by NATO forces since 2006, could become a target for terrorists.

In his comment, "tourists" is an apparent reference to the migrants crossing into Bulgaria from Turkey, with the town of Yambol (near which the Bezmer baze is located) lying just several dozen kilometers from the Bulgarian-Turkish border.
