A terrorist blast ripped through a bus carrying Israeli youth at a Bulgarian resort, killing at least eight and wounding 27, according to police.
The explosion happened in the city of Burgas some 250 miles east of Sofia in a parking lot where Israeli tourists had just landed. A number of buses and cars were on fire close to where the bomb was detonated.
In response to the attack, Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Natanyahu called it “an Iranian terror attack that is spreading across the world.” The premier noted that the attack followed similar attacks in India, Georgia, Thailand and Kenya in recent months.
Officials are combing the area in order to determine the cause of the blast. Sources had said that investigators on the scene were not aware if it was the result of a suicide bomber or remote device, however, AP has reported that it is now believed to have been a bomb set by a suicide bomber.
The explosion coincides with the 18th anniversary of the bombing of a Jewish community cent in Argentina that, according to AP, killed 85 people.
