UPDATE: 7/19/12 10:46PM Sources are indicating that the Swedish national that was held in Guantanamo is not the Burgas bomber. As soon as we know more, we’ll update the report.
Bulgarian TV has announced that Medi Muhammad Ghezali, the suicide bomber who killed seven people on Wednesday, five of them Israelis, was member of the International Jihad who spent a year in Guantanamo Bay prison.
This may mean that PM Netanyahu’s accusation that Iran was behind the attack could be wrong.
Ghezali was arrested in Pakistan in 2009 along with his wife and a group of foreigners, including seven Turks, according to NRG.
Bulgarian officials are currently denying that Ghezali was the bomber.
