Burgas Bomber Named – Friends & Relatives Celebrate Confirmation Of Muslim Murderer’s Identity

Bulgarian prosecutors revealed for the first time Friday the identity of the bomber in a deadly attack on Israeli tourists in the Bulgarian sea resort of Burgas in 2012. Five Israeli tourists were killed in the attack as well as the driver of the bus and the bomber, while more than 30 other Israelis were injured.

The bomber was named as Mohamad Hassan El-Husseini, a dual French and Lebanese citizen, born in Lebanon in 1989, prosecutors said in a joint statement with the national security agency DANS.

“He was positively identified thanks to a DNA test and other measures during the course of the investigation,” they added.

“Friends and relatives of Husseini also posted messages of praise on social media for his martyr’s death,” the statement noted.
