Palestinian fugitive ‘murdered by Mossad spies’ in Bulgaria

A Palestinian fugitive was found dead inside the Palestinian embassy in Bulgaria on Friday, raising fears he may have been assassinated by Mossad agents.

The body of Omar Nayef Zayed, a convicted murderer who evaded Israeli authorities for more than 25 years, was found in the garden of the Palestinian embassy in Sofia on Friday morning.

He appears to have died after plummeting from one of the floors of an embassy building, but Bulgarian prosecutors could not confirm if he fell or was pushed.
