An explosion has killed at least six people on a bus carrying Israeli tourists in the eastern Bulgarian city of Burgas.
More than 30 people were also injured when the bus exploded at Burgas airport, by the Black Sea.
Witnesses told Israeli TV that someone boarded the bus and a huge explosion immediately followed.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later accused Iran of being behind the explosion.
“All the signs lead to Iran,” he said in a statement. “Israel will respond forcefully to Iranian terror.”
The Israeli foreign ministry said in a statement: “There are six bodies on the scene – one critically wounded died at the hospital and two seriously injured are in intensive care. Thirty more people are being treated.”
It said the bus was carrying tourists from a charter flight that arrived from Israel.
Wednesday’s blast came on the 18th anniversary of a deadly attack on a Jewish community centre in Argentina. Israel blamed Iran for that attack – a claim denied by Tehran.

What can be more cowardly and pathetic, than armed men slaying defenseless tourists?
The terror-attack in Bulgaria came just a day after security police in Jerusalem stopped scanning all travelers at the central buss station.
During my visit to Israel this week, I could also see that the scanning at shopping mall and public buildings were more relaxed than “normal”.
The last explosion in Bulgaria display the basic nature of terrorism. The receiving end has to be on its guard all the time. The terrorist can be quiet for weeks and monts, and suddenly strike again.
Like a snake waiting in the grass, terrorists surface and strikes.
The only way to keep terrorism at bay, is to build larger prisons. And keep the bloodthirsty criminals behind bars for life.
Israel has also practiced a policy of demolishing houses where the terrorist resided. It shall surely be painful to kill Jews, just because they are Jewish.
We have to be able to love our enemies enough, to keep him imprisoned, so he can reflect on what he has done.
