Multinational Search for Hizbullah Terrorists Behind Bulgaria Blast

(New York Times) Matthew Brunwasser and Nicholas Kulish - Law enforcement and intelligence officials from several countries are working to find two Hizbullah members, a Canadian and an Australian, both of Lebanese descent, who are believed to be behind the deadly bombing of a bus full of Israeli tourists in Bulgaria. Bulgarian officials believe the two were working with a third man who was accidentally killed while trying to stow the bomb in the luggage compartment under the bus. On Wednesday, Bulgarian Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov said the three flew from Beirut to Warsaw, then traveled by train to Bulgaria. He said evidence indicated that the plan was to blow up the bus while it was traveling to a hotel using a remote detonator. After the bomb exploded, the two surviving conspirators escaped to Romania, then flew to Turkey before traveling to Lebanon.
