from Bulgarian media sources that the country's interior minister announced that the person who blew up the tourist bus at Bulgaria's Burgas airport, killing five and wounded 34 Israeli citizens, is Ghezali, a 33-year-old Swedish citizen of Algerian descent.
The Times of Israel
carries the same news report.
Friday morning news
on Israel's radio programme Galgalatz
announced however that the identity of the bomber has not yet been confirmed. Similarly,
Haaretz Friday morning newspaper reports
that Swedish and Bulgarian authorities are denying that Mehdi Ghezali was involved.
In the meantime, the
Jerusalem Post reports
that 5 of the Israeli victims, four men and one woman, have been named and their coffins will arrive in Israel on Friday, 20 July.

and terror attacks will not force them to remain at home and give up on their holidays outside of Israel.
On the homefront,
Israel is on full alert
for the weekend following rising unrest in Syria.
