Bulgaria: Security Officers Injured Protecting Turkish-Bulgarian Leader's Assaulter TV grab from Kanal 3 showing Gen. Todor Kodzheykov.

2 officers from Bulgaria's National Security Service have been injured while trying to cover and drag away the person who made an unsuccessful assassination attempt against Movement for Rights and Freedoms leader Ahmed Dogan.

This was revealed at a press event later Saturday evening by Security Service head Gen. Todor Kodzheykov, who said that one of the officers had possibly suffered a broken arm.

Kodzheykov stated that the two officers attempted to protect the assaulter from the delegates at the MRF congress, who had proceeded to mercilessly beat and kick him, after he made two ineffective attempts to shoot at Dogan during the event.

The Security Service head said that the agency was not formally responsible for organizing the security of the congress, its official duty being only the personal security of Ahmed Dogan.

Kodzheykov added that the Service is carrying out an analysis of exactly how the incident occured and whether there were any breaches in the work of officers at the location.

The National Security Service is a Bulgarian state agency devoted to bodyguarding senior Bulgarian statesmen and politicians who are believed to be under threat for their personal security.

Dogan, who has been chairing the Movement since its founding as a party in 1990, has been placed under the Security Service's protection.

"2 officers from Bulgaria's National Security Service have been injured while trying to cover and drag away the person who made an unsuccessful....."------one simple question: will those bastards-who
injured the officers on duty- be found and taken to the Court? (and I don't ask why these officers didn't start shooting in reply to those turks' attack on, say, USA such attackers on the policemen
would get a bullet immediately. Any doubt?)

Al, maybe you Turks should stop shooting each other, is the real issue?

What a load of crap.

The young boy should never have been able to point a gun so close at Dogan's head.

Anyway, I'm not surprised.

Cartoon and chalga bozoes all way round, when it comes to Bulgaria's NS operatives.

Probably fat boys with no brains, only fit to smash cortege cars.

Just my two stotinki
