Here is video of an attempted assassination of the leader of the Turkish Minority Party in Bulgaria – Ahmed Dogan. In the video, you see a 25 year-old would-be assassin jump on stage, approach Dogan while he was speaking at a Party Conference, and aim a pistol at his head. You hear a faint click, but the gun did not go off. Dogan then wrestled briefly with the assailant while security and onlookers rushed the stage to come to his aid. The assailant was repeatedly punched and kicked by those who rushed the stage.

UK SUN: Footage of the incident shows a crazed gunman jumping on stage and pointing a small black pistol close to Ahmed Dogan’s head.

Mr Dogan – leader of Bulgaria’s Movement for Rights and Freedoms party – instinctively raises his arm in defence, but it appears the pistol fails to go off.

The two men wrestle briefly beside the rostrum, before security staff race on stage and bundle the assailant to the floor amid loud boos from the audience.

In the ensuing chaos, furious delegates and officials dressed in smart suits are seen raining punches and kicks down on the hapless assailant.

Police later said the 25-year-old suspect was armed with a gas pistol and two knives, though his motive was unclear. He was arrested.

Mr Dogan, 58, escaped unscathed.

Party official Ceyhan Ibryamov said: “Ahmed Dogan is in good health. Everything is under control.” . . . Read More

A horrific terrorist attack has killed six Israelis on a tourist bus in Bulgaria. The cause of the blast is believed to be a bomb. The blast also wounded 32 other people. Israel has been quick to say Iran is behind the attack and promises to “settle the account.”

NEW YORK TIMES: A bus carrying Israeli tourists exploded in a fireball on Wednesday outside an airport in the Bulgarian city of Burgas, killing at least six people and wounding dozens more in what Bulgaria, Israel and the United States called a terrorist attack. Israel quickly blamed Iran.

Photographs and video taken at the airport showed billowing black smoke from the explosion that left the bus a blackened skeleton, scorched several buses nearby, shattered windows and forced the airport to temporarily close. Eyewitnesses quoted by Israeli news media said some victims were on fire as they tried to escape the flaming bus and that many had suffered severe burns.

The Bulgarian Foreign Ministry said on its Web site that the country’s president, foreign minister and interior minister rushed to the scene and that the authorities were working on the theory that the explosion “was a terrorist attack” but did not specify who might be responsible.

In Washington, President Obama said in a statement that he strongly condemned “today’s barbaric terrorist attack on Israelis in Bulgaria.” . . . . Read More
