Bulgaria releases suicide bomber video, has fingerprints


The Bulgarian government Thursday released video footage of a man it suspects of being the suicide bomber behind an attack on Israeli tourists and said it had his fingerprints.

"It is someone who draws absolutely no more attention than any other tourist. The man is around 36 years old. We have his fingerprints" and are testing for DNA, Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov told a news conference.

The footage shows a white man with very long blond hair

which could be a wig wandering around the airport where

the attack took place wearing a blue T-shirt, shorts, white

sneakers, a baseball cap and sunglasses.

He is shown carrying a dark, bulky rucksack on his back and a laptop bag around his front. The video was released to

television channels with an appeal for help from the public.

The explosion Wednesday at Burgas airport on the Black Sea ripped through a bus with around 50 Israeli tourists boarding or storing their luggage. The blast killed five tourists and the driver, as well as the bomber.
