SOFIA, Bulgaria (AP) — Bulgarian authorities have released a computer-generated image of a suspected accomplice of a man who killed five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian driver in a bus bombing a month ago.
The Interior Ministry said Thursday that “there is data that the man is related to the terrorist attack at the airport.”
The image of a man with short dark hair is accompanied by a photo from a fake driver’s license found on the bomber, in which the man appears to be wearing a wig.
Police originally believed the license belonged to the bomber who was decapitated in the July 18 explosion but say a facial reconstruction proved that was not the case.
The ministry didn’t provide any further details, but the photo appears to confirm suspicions the bomber wasn’t working alone.
This is the second image released of those believed to be responsible for the terror attack. Bulgarian authorities released on a similar computer-generated image of the suspected bomber on August 1, and said at the time that it was likely that a “sophisticated group of conspirators” were behind the bombing.
