Bulgarian authorities have released a computer-generated image of a suspected accomplice of a man who killed five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian driver in a bus bombing a month ago.

The image of a man with short dark hair is accompanied by a photo from a fake driver's license, in which the man appears to be wearing a wig.

The Interior Ministry said that "there is data that the man [in the image] is related to the terrorist attack at the airport."

The ministry didn't provide any further details, but the photo appears to confirm suspicions the bomber wasn't working alone.

Two weeks ago, a computer-generated image of the suicide bomber's face was released by Bulgarian experts.
