Six people, five Israelis and the Bulgarian bus driver, were killed and over 30 wounded on Wednesday (July 18) in a suicide bombing attack on a bus carrying Israelis at Sarafovo Airport in Burgas, Bulgaria.
The blast on the bus occurred soon after a charter plane from Ben-Gurion Airport, landed at 16:45. The bus was the second of four carrying Israeli tourists from the airport to hotels in the city. The seventh body was that of the suicide bomber.
The Foreign Ministry formed a team of experts that flew to Burgas to assist local authorities in the investigation. The Israeli Embassy in Sofia has been mobilized and is ready to assist the team.
The bodies of the Israeli victims and all those wounded in the terror attack were flown home to Israel.
