Bulgarian authorities have recovered DNA evidence of one of the terrorists behind the summer 2012 Burgas bus bombing that killed five Israeli tourists and their Bulgarian bus driver.
The DNA belonged to a Lebanese-Canadian man named Hassan El Hajj Hassan, who was in charge of logistics for the terror attack, including the remote detonation of the suicide bomb, Sofia News Agency reported.
Hassan’s DNA was found on two baseball caps and a towel he left behind at a nearby hotel room at the resort city of Nesebar, where he was staying prior to the attack.
Last month Bulgarian authorities announced a third suspect had been found in addition to Hassan and accomplice Meliad Farah, but the third suspect’s identity has not been revealed since the authorities are continuing their investigation. Bulgarian authorities believe the terror suspects belong to Hezbollah.
