Bulgaria: Burgas Bombing Suspects Did Not Enter Lebanon Legally - Report Police sketches of one of the two living suspects.

Lebanese authorities have stated that none of the two suspects in last year's bus bombing in the Bulgarian city of Burgas have entered Lebanon legally, according to L'Orient-Le Jour.

The French-language paper has cited the Lebanese General Security Directorate.

Bulgarian Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov stated last Tuesday that Bulgarian investigators had "a well-founded assumption" that the perpetrators of the deadly attack belonged to the military formation of Hezbollah.

Tsvetanov revealed that a man with an Australian passport and a man with a Canadian passport were two of the three conspirators involved in the attack, which claimed the lives of five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver.

The two living suspects are believed to be living in Lebanon.

Lebanese organization Hezbollah already dismissed the allegations voiced by Bulgaria that it was involved in the terror attack in Burgas last year as an "Israeli smear campaign."
