The Bulgarian authorities continue their work on investigating the terrorist act at Sarafovo Airport (Burgas) committed on July 18th, 2012

One year after the bomb attack against bus with Israeli tourists, as a result of which five Israeli and one Bulgarian national have lost their lives, the authorities are sending an appeal for cooperation towards the society regarding two individuals, who are suspected of having link with the bombing. They are identified as: Meliad Farah (a.k.a Hussein Hussein) with date of birth 05.11.1980, Australian national, and Hassan El Hajj Hassan, with date of birth 22.03.1988, Canadian national.
During the period 28.06 – 18.07.2012 both of them have been spotted in the regions of Ruse, Varna, Nesebar, the “Sunny beach” resort and the village of Ravda.
The investigative authorities suspect that the aforementioned individuals have registered themselves at hotels and accommodations, using fake identities under the name of Brian Jeremiah Jameson, Jacque Felipe Martin and Ralph William Rico. They are also believed to have rented cars using the mentioned fake identities. Additionally, it was established that in July, 2012, Farah rented a “Renault Clio”, L/P А9027КТ, in the village of Ravda.
All citizens having information about the individuals are appealed to contact the nearest structure of the Ministry of Interior. Their anonymity is guaranteed.

In the interest of investigation further information will not be provided.
