Diplomats Say Bulgaria Agrees with EU on Bus Bombing

 Bulgaria will not impede a push to put Hezbollah's armed wing on the European Union's terrorism blacklist because the new government has now decided to fall into line with its fellow EU members, diplomats were quoted as saying by Reuters.

The previous Bulgarian government blamed Hezbollah for a bombing that killed five Israeli tourists and a driver in a Bulgarian resort last year.
Bulgaria alarmed many of its EU partners this month when Foreign Minister Kristian Vigenin, from the new Socialist government, backed away from that stance and questioned whether there was enough proof of Hezbollah's role.
However, since then Bulgaria has been lobbied by other EU states and has decided to change direction again, according to two Western diplomats who spoke on condition of anonymity.
