Germany backs terror label for Hezbollah

Published: 05.22.13, 14:05 / Israel News

Germany says it supports adding the military wing of the Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah to the European Union's list of terrorist groups.


Germany's foreign ministry says the decision follows "discussions we have had with our partners following the terrorist attack in Burgas" on the Bulgarian coast last year that killed five Israelis and a Bulgarian bus driver. Bulgaria has accused Hezbollah of the attack, a charge the Shiite group denies. Germany had previously resisted calls to list Hezbollah as a terrorist organization for fear it could destabilize Lebanon. (AP)
