BURGAS, Bulgaria — A lanky, long-haired man wearing a baseball cap and plaid shorts with a fake Michigan driver's license carried out a deadly suicide attack on a bus full of Israeli vacationers, Bulgarian officials said Thursday.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed the attack on Iranian-backed Hezbollah, a Lebanese Shiite Muslim guerrilla group, and threatened retaliation. Seven people — five Israelis, the Bulgarian driver and the bomber — died in the blast Wednesday.
Though the suspected bomber has not been officially identified, reports in the Bulgarian press claim he is a Swedish citizen of Algerian and Finnish descent named Mehdi Ghezali, according to the Times of Israel. Mehdi was reportedly held at Guantanamo Bay from 2002 to 2004. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/world/fake-michigan-driver-license-found-suspect-bulgaria-bus-bombing-killed-israeli-tourists-article
