    Reuters

    Update: According to BurgasInfo.com not one but two buses were blown up. Unclear if the second one was also carrying Israeli tourists.
    According to Bulgarian press Sega.bg, and confirmed by other wire sources, a bus with 40 Israeli tourists was "blown up" at 5:30 pm local time at the local airport of the seaside town of Bourgas. Sega says that according to BTV "it is an assassination attempt." The bomb was located in the trunk of a white bus with Israel tourists from Israel who were en route to the seaside town of Sunny Beach according to an airport source. The mayor of the city, Dimitar Nikolov confirmed the news according to Sega. Furthermore, according to the airport's website, an Air Via flight from Tel Aviv landed at 4:50 pm local time. The shock wave was so large it also exploded two neighboringing buses located in the arrival area of the airport.

    I am pretty confident that the Israelis wont retaliate to this terrorism though, they have a history of ignoring atrocities against their nation.

    "(Reuters) - At least four people were killed and dozens injured by an explosion on Wednesday on a bus carrying Israeli tourists outside an airport in Bulgaria that the Israeli prime minister immediately blamed on Iran.

    The mayor of Burgas, on Bulgaria's Black Sea coast, said the bus was carrying Israeli tourists, but police could not immediately confirm their nationality. Police said several other buses at the site had been damaged.

    "I do not know what it was, but it was a very powerful blast, and I think it was something placed on purpose in the bus, which carried 47 Israeli tourists," Burgas mayor Dimitar Nikolov told BTV television, adding 33 people were injured.

    An Israeli witness said in an interview with Israeli army radio that the explosion was probably caused by a suicide bomber at the entrance of the bus.

    The explosion comes on the 18th anniversary of a 1994 bomb attack on the headquarters of Argentina's main Jewish organisation by an Iranian-backed Hezbollah suicide bomber, which killed 85 people.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed Iran for the Wednesday's blast and said Israel would respond.

    "All the signs lead to Iran. Only in the past few months we have seen Iranian attempts to attack Israelis in Thailand, India, Georgia, Kenya, Cyprus and other places," Netanyahu said in a statement.

    "Eighteen years exactly after the blast at the Jewish community centre in Argentina, murderous Iranian terror continues to hit innocent people. This is an Iranian terror attack that is spreading throughout the entire world. Israel will react powerfully against Iranian terror," he said.

    Israeli officials had previously said that Bulgaria, a popular holiday destination for Israeli tourists, was vulnerable to attack by Islamist militants who could infiltrate via nearby Turkey.

    Israeli diplomats have been targeted in several countries in recent months by bombers who Israel said struck on behalf of Iran.

    Though Tehran has denied involvement, some analysts believe it is trying to avenge the assassinations of several scientists from its controversial nuclear programme, which the Iranians have blamed on Israel and its Western allies.

    Israel has threatened air strikes against Iran's nuclear facilities if diplomatic efforts fail to stop Tehran getting nuclear weapons, which it denies it is seeking.

    Mayor Nikolov said 171 people had arrived on a plane from Israel to spend their holiday at the Black Sea coast. One American and one Slovenian passenger were on board.

    "The latest information is that four people have died. Three on the scene and one later in hospital. Over 30 people were rushed to hospital," an Interior Ministry spokeswoman said

    Israeli media said seven people had been killed.

    Bulgarian police were investigating and could not say at this point what caused the explosion.

    Burgas airport was closed after the incident and flights were redirected to the airport of Varna, police said.

    El Al cancelled its flight from Tel Aviv to Sofia that was due to leave at 1600 GMT and consequently the turnaround flight. an El Al spokeswoman told Reuters. Nothing has been decided about Thursday's flights.

    Israeli rescue services were planning to send a plane to Burgas with medical staff to treat the injured and take bodies home, the Israeli ambulance service Magen David Adom said."


    Iran fingered. Isreali "medical staff" sent.

    Iran took a big hit today in Damascus. The bearded children that run it want to try and get Syria off the front pages.

    If this turns out to be a terrorist act we knew that innocent Israeli tourists would get hit outside Israel at some point, it was inevitable that with all the thwarted and botched attempts that has been going on, the terrorists would get lucky once at some point

    But we all know the cowardice ass-holes responsible eventually will be made to pay a heavy price.

    No matter what people might think about Israel and their policies there is no excuses for this kind of indiscriminate murderous rabid lunacy, it was in Bulgaria FFS

    7 dead now reported.

    Israel's ambassador to the UK on Sky:

    "Two planeloads of Medics and Paramedics have arrived in Sofia to assist".

    "Medics". "Paramedics".

    Yeah, I'm sure.

    The guy with his legs blown off was confirmed carrying an Iranian passport.

    Has he had a useless show trial ? No.

    Do we know it was him ? Yes
