Interior Minister Yovchev said he is certain that Hezbollah was responsible for the Burgas terrorist attack that killed five Israelis in 2012. Bulgarian media claimed that the Burgas suicide bomber was born in Algeria and had trained in south Lebanon camps, and that two of his accomplices, Meliad Farah and al-Hajj Hassan, were of Lebanese origin.
Bulgaria plans to try two alleged members of Hezbollah in absentia for last year's bombing in Burgas that killed five Israelis. The suspects, Australian citizen Meliad Farah, a.k.a. Hussein Hussein, and Canadian citizen Hassan El Hajj Hassan, are both Lebanese but have not lived in Lebanon for some time. Bulgarian authorities are seeking the extradition of two suspects in the case from unnamed countries.
Bulgarian media reported that the two suspected Hezbollah operatives identified by authorities on July 25 had received about $100,000 in money transfers from Hezbollah. The money, which helped finance the Burgas attack, reportedly went into their bank accounts in Canada and Australia.
