Bulgarian PM Confirms A Group Acted Together To Kill Vacationing Israeli's In Airport Attack

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borisov has confirmed that a group had acted together to target and kill Israeli's during the recent attack at the Burgas airport where 6 people died, calling them a sophisticated group of conspirators. 5 Israeli's and 1 Bulgarian bus driver were killed, while dozens more were injured.

However, the prime minister did not give many details - including how many people were believed to have been involved in the Wednesday attack. He also declined to back up Israel's claims that Iran and militant group Hezbollah played roles.

In describing the detailed plans, he said no two of them were ever seen together, that they moved in different cities separately, rented and leased vehicles, and that they were "exceptionally skilled" and said they operated under "strict conspiracy rules."

He also confirmed that DNA from the suicide bomber has been shared with Israel, the FBI and Interpol.

"There was absolutely no chance of preventing such act of violence," Borisov insisted. "We could have only detected it by chance or if we had been informed by the services that such activities were under way in Bulgaria.
