SOFIA — A third suspect has been identified in the bombing of a tour bus in Burgas that killed five Israelis and their Bulgarian bus driver.

The new suspect announced on Feb. 20, 2014 was not named.

The two suspects previous- ly identified in the July, 2012 bombing are believed to be in Lebanon.

They are Meliad Farah, a 32-year-old Australian also known as Hussein Hussein, and Hassan el-Hajj Hassan, a 25-year-old Canadian.

Both are said to be associated with Hezbollah, the Lebanon-based terrorist group; both also hold Lebanese citizenship.

Chief Prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarov told reporters on Feb. 20 that the discovery of a new suspect will prolong the current investigation, which prosecutors had hoped to conclude by April, according to Reuters.
