Possible 2nd suspect in Bulgaria bus blast, source says

[Updated 7:20 a.m. ET] Bulgarian police have been alerted to the possibility of a second suspect in a bomb attack that killed five Israeli tourists in Burgas, a high-level source within Bulgaria's Interior Ministry told CNN.

Investigators have determined that the bomb was detonated by a man caught on airport security videos about an hour before Wednesday's attack at Burgas International Airport. But they are now looking at the possibility that he had help.

According to the source, investigators have spoken to several eyewitnesses in attempt to identify the bomber.

They describe a man with short hair who spoke English with a "distinct" accent.

This is different from the man seen on the security video who has long hair, however, leading investigators to look into the possibility that a second person may be involved, a source said.

Police in Burgas have been given an identikit photo of the man and told to look out for anyone matching this description.

Earlier, a lower-level source at the Interior Ministry told CNN that police were looking for a second suspect, possibly an American.

That was later corrected by a higher-level source, who said a second suspect was a possibility, but had not been confirmed.

    And she shall be clothed as if by the sun, she shall have 12 stars in her hair, and her feet shall be as if she stood upon the the moon.
    She shall appear as if ready to give birth, but be afraid, as the dark realms leaders is waiting to devour her spawn

    She was given wings, much like a golden eagles, and she flew from the darkness to the place where the pillars of wisdom would protect her. safe stop their brilliance.

    There she waits till her time ripens, for mankind and the darkness are one for a bit longer. with but few ready to accept her enlightment.
    She is The Sophia she was before. creation. anf present as the earth was FORMed, and as man and women WAS FORMED, and. then mankinD threw HER aside. and she dwellsi with them no longer' SHE IS WISDOM.

    Bulgarian bus blast. Is that anything like Bing Crosby eating a piece of bologna, slapped on a bun, with a slab of bacon in between?

    AMAZING. Five Israel tourists are dead and it is all over the media and on the internet. But when hundreds of Christians are being killed in the middle-east it is not all over the media and internet.
