Bulgaria shows images of suspect in Israel bus attack
Bulgarian authorities on Thursday released images of the suspected suicide bomber behind a deadly attack on Israeli tourists.

Israel blamed Iran and the Lebanese group Hezbollah. Iran described the accusations as "ridiculous".

"The suicide bomber, wearing shorts and carrying a backpack, looked like any other tourist," said Bulgarian Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov.

Authorities released a video showing a white man with long hair, possibly a wig, and sunglasses wandering around Burgas airport.

Tsvetanov said he appeared to be aged about 26 and had a fake driving licence from the US state of Michigan.

The authorities had taken fingerprints and were being helped by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation, Interpol and Europol, to discover the bomber's identity, the minister said.

Five tourists were killed at the scene. The Bulgarian driver died later in hospital, officials said. Thirty-two people were wounded.
