Experts at Bulgaria’s Interior Ministry successfully recovered fingerprints from the suicide bomber who attacked Israeli tourists last week and forwarded the crucial data to the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and to Interpol for analysis.
Interior Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov also said that DNA tests will also be undertaken and the results will also sent to the FBI and Interpol.
Tsvetanov disclosed that the bomber was dressed like an American and carried a false Michigan driver’s licence. He also added that the suicide bomber appeared on security camera, about approximately an hour before the suicide attack.
Initial reports showed that the explosion occurred in the luggage compartment of the bus when the suicide bomber took off his backpack.
The attack occurred on July 18 at the Sarafovo airport in Bourgas. The terrorist attack killed seven Israeli tourists, and severely wounded 32 people.
