Channel 10 showed on Monday security footage taken by the Bulgarian border police in the immediate aftermath of the fatal bombing on a bus filled with Israeli tourists in the Black Sea resort town of Burgas
in July 2012. Five Israelis and their Bulgarian bus driver lost their lives in the blast and 33 people were injured. The bomber was also killed.
The first images in the video are standard security footage, yet immediately following the blast the camera zeroes in on the bus. Among the injured passengers making their way out of the burning vehicle is Gilat Kolangi, whose husband Itzik died in the explosion.
Kolangi, who was seriously injured, was told of her partner's death only upon arrival to Israel, as her condition improved.

The passengers of Flight 392 of the Bulgarian charter company "Air-Vin" from Israel
to Burgas alighted from the plane and scattered between a number of buses that were supposed to take them to a local hotel when the blast rocked one of the buses.
Bulgarian officials said in February a probe into the attack showed two of the terrorists
who carried out the bombing are Hezbollah
operatives. "There is data showing the financing and connection between Hezbollah and the two suspects.
"What can be established as a well-grounded assumption is that the two persons whose real identity has been determined belonged to the military wing of Hezbollah," said Bulgarian Minister of Interior Tsvetan Tsvetanov.
