According to Channel 2, the report found the Hizbullah was behind the fatal bombing.

Bulgaria’s Interior Minister, Tsvetan Tsvetanov, is updating European leaders regarding Bulgaria’s findings. The new information means the EU may vote to recognize Hizbullah as a terrorist organization.

The report also found that Europol, the EU’s agency for criminal intelligence, successfully identified three of the four suspects in the bombing. All apparently entered Bulgaria two and a half weeks before the attack, using fake identity cards.
