65 People Injured in Sofia Gas Attack
The life of all injured people is out of risk, although at first it was said that four of those injured in the attack were in very bad condition. Seventeen of the injured people are still at the Pirogov Emergency Institute, while 26 are hospitalised at the Military Medical Academy.
At first the gas was said to be chloropicrin, but it was later revealed that it was a gas with similar components.
Police officials refuted all claims that the attack was a terror act saying that it was an accident. The man arrested for it claimed that explained that he was carrying a pen loaded with the toxic substance in his pocket. While at the Traffic Police office, he shoved his hand into the pocket, and the pen dropped out.
Interior Chief Secretary Boyko Borisov said that teargas spray was freely available in shops at a price of BGN 11 and used mainly for self-defence.
