Bulgaria Releases Image Of Suicide Bomber's Face


Five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver were killed by the suicide bomber at the Burgas airport on July 18.

Five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver were killed by the suicide bomber at the Burgas airport on July 18.

Bulgarian experts have constructed an image of the face of a suicide bomber who killed five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver on the Black Sea coast two weeks ago.

The bomber's head was found at the scene.

The interior minister said on August 1 that the computer-generated image shows a man aged around 30, with swept-back black hair and dark eyes.

Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov said the badly damaged face of the bomber was reconstructed "thanks to modern technology, supplied to Bulgaria by partner services."

In a video of the run-up to the July 18 attack, released by police, the purported bomber wore checked Bermuda shorts and a blue T-shirt and carried a small rucksack.
