I still can't believe this! Until this day we were thinking that our small country stays aside from those terrorist acts. What an illusion! Is there a safe place remaining on this Earth? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-18892336 http://www.burgasinfo.com/uploads/post/249d2b2f233dbf59a097122b45cbb23b.jpg

Hello Fannitia! I am from Bulgaria and I live in the city where all of this happened. The airport is on 10 kilometers away of the city. It is a terrible news. Before we understand what happened I saw many ambulances rolling around our building, trying to reach the boulevard for leaving the city and reaching the airport. Also few police cars. We had no idea what happens, but it must have been a big thing, because I have never seen so many ambulances in my life - on both directions (to the hospital and leaving the hospital) I saw 2-3 of them each 2-3 minutes. So that's how we understood something big happened. We feel so sorry for all of this people. Terrible thing. I really don't know how the security acted to prevent from such problem. We read in one bulgarian website just right now that the bomb was where the suitcases of the people were. We are still waiting new news.

Hello Fannitia, right now I turned on BTV to see the news. What they said on the earlier news Nova TV didn't say much, so it's little blind spot for us still. I just know what I saw - many ambulances and that's all. And of course what they said in the news Nova TV, but the info was very short. I will try to read what's written in the net. I just saw you are bulgarian! So happy to meet you here sister!

I think they are trying to calm down the situation. The hospital is very near to our home, this where we donated - me in March, my boyfriend in April, it is probably on 200 meters of our building. I am not sure this is the best hospital they could choose. My boyfriend was with very strong kidney pains a month ago and they sent him home in the most rude and bad way, they told him they can't do anything to help him. Also they did that once more at the middle of the night time ago.

Very saddening act indeed. What worrys me is the ramifications. Israel do not take acts of aggression against them lightly. Let us hope that this is not the catalyst to something far more worrying. And of course our hearts go out to the familys' of the victims.

I don't know what could happen. The Israeli PM Netanyahu pointed at Iran right away. The local press commented that this terror attack could be an excuse to begin a war with Iran. I think that this is a dangerous situation. It could lead to more innocent victims.

Personally my beliefs on this one from a Biblical stand point, and also as a Christian we are in the last days. Many of the things that are happening and continue to happen are predicted in the Book of Revelations. It is sad to see so many people becoming so uncaring and decide to do things like this. I only hope one day if they live long enough really think about what they have done, and feel Sorry for it, and wish they could take it all back.
