A bus carrying Israeli tourists has exploded, killing at least seven people and wounding more than thirty. Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has called it an Iranian terror attack and promises a tough response.

The site of the explosion was an airport parking lot, some 400 kilometres east of Bulgaria's capital, Sofia. Smoke billowed and several buses and cars caught fire near the exploded vehicle.

Bulgaria's Foreign Minister has confirmed the explosion was caused by a bomb. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. The Israeli Prime Minister has been quick to say that all the signs point to Iran. Israelis have been the target of a number of attacks outside their country and Israel suspects Iran of being behind them.

Netanyahu says Israel will react strongly to the incident. Tehran has not yet issued a response.
