Terror against Israelis in BulgariaSeven people are dead and 20 are injured after a suicide bombing attack against a bus of Israeli tourists in the airport in the town of Burgas. Today was the 18th anniversary of the suicide bombing carried out by Hezbullah and Iran against the AMIA Jewish Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The death toll, though still not officially confirmed, was reported by Bulgaria's Sofia News Agency.Israelis are always warned not to travel together in groups that are obviously Israeli. Maybe we need to send security guards along on our vacations too. Unbelievable.
The bus was carrying Israeli tourists who landed in Bulgaria at a 4:45 p.m for a vacation. Two adjacent buses were also damaged in the blast.
Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman spoke with his Bulgarian counterpart Nikolay Mladenov in relation to the explosion.
Mladenov is heading to the site of the blast and said that he will bring Liberman up to date when he arrives.
Liberman called for an immediate meeting at the Foreign Ministry's situation room to discuss the issue with the relevant bodies.
But the Hussein Obama administration won't let Israel participate in the counterterrorism forum.
