Bulgaria Marks Anniversary of Its Deadliest Terror Attack
April 16 marks the 86th anniversary of the deadliest terror attack in Bulgaria's history, the assault at the Sveta Nedelya church
On Friday, a memorial service took place at the church in honor of the 150 victims of the assault.
On April 16, 1925, a group organized by the Bulgarian Communist Party (BCP) blew up the roof of the Sveta Nedelya Church in downtown Sofia.
The assault took place during the funeral service of General Konstantin Georgiev, who had been killed in a previous Communist assault on 14 April. 150 people, mainly from the country's political and military elite, were killed in the attack and around 500 were injured.
By chance, all government members survived. The monarch, Tsar Boris III, was not in the church, as he was attending the funerals of those killed in the attempt on his own life in the Arabakonak pass in Stara Planina.
