Bulgaria foils attack on Israeli tourist bus: report

JERUSALEM: Bulgarian authorities last week foiled a bomb attack targeting a bus chartered to take Israeli tourists to a ski resort, Israeli public television reported on Sunday.

The device was found on a bus on Tuesday that was due to transport a group of Israeli tourists from the Turkish border to a Bulgarian ski resort, according to the report.

Bulgarian troops were deployed in several ski resorts frequented by Israeli tourists after the bomb was found, the report added.

The television station's military commentator said the foiled attack could have been linked to the fourth anniversary of slain Lebanese Hezbollah commander Imad Mughniyeh who was killed in a 2008 car bombing in Syria.

Hezbollah has accused Israel's intelligence service Mossad of killing Mughniyeh.
