Bugras Bomber Identity Still Unknown, More Details to be Released Tuesday
The latest findings on July’s terror attack in Burgas will not be revealed to the public in totality, according to Bularia’s Interior Ministry. Some details, however, will be released on Tuesday in order to encourage the public to offer clues to revealing the bomber’s identity.
“We have new data, but it is operational and I cannot share it in public. We had some discussions today with representatives of our foreign partner services and we concluded that we can release some information to the media on Tuesday,” Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov told Focus News Agency on Monday.
Tsvetanov informed that the investigators currently do not have knowledge of the bomber’s identity, saying that Bulgarian officials would need the assistance of Bulgarian citizens to help investigators identify the killer when the details of the case are released through the media.
When asked about the New York Times news report revealing a high number of phone calls made between Bulgaria and Lebanon days before the massacre, that killed six including five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver, Tsvetanov declined to comment.
Initial reports from the Interior Ministry speculated the terrorist had been a foreign suicide bomber. However, recent observations by terror experts and the Israeli media have been skeptical.
INTERPOL distributed a Black Notice at the request of Bulgarian authorities, to each of its 190 member countries in all four of its official languages (Arabic, English, French and Spanish), in an effort to secure more information about the unidentified corpse, and has also recently published a digitally reconstructed image of the perpetrator.
