Netanyahu Points At Iran After Explosion In Bulgaria Kills Israelis

Reports vary on the number of deaths in Bulgaria today from an explosion that tore apart a bus carrying Israeli tourists, most of them reportedly young people in the Black Sea city of Burgas on vacation.

The Associated Press says at least four people were killed and more than two dozen wounded. The Jerusalem Post is reporting there were at least seven deaths, citing Bulgaria’s Sofia News Agency and Bulgarian National Television. The explosion happened at the Burgas airport.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the AP says, is already calling it “an Iranian terror attack” and promising that “Israel will react strongly to Iran’s terror.” There’s been no response yet from Iranian officials, though the Iranian media are reporting about the explosion.
