The ministry didn't provide any further details, but the photo appears to confirm suspicions the bomber wasn't working alone.


Earlier this month Bulgaria published a composite photo of the suicide bomber himself. The attacker’s identity has remained a mystery.


Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Iran of orchestrating the attack in Burgas.


"All the signs are pointing to Iran," he told a press conference shortly after the attack. "The murderous Iranian terror continues to target innocent people. Iranian terror is spreading worldwide... Israel will react to it with force."
