SOFIA, Bulgaria - A brazen daytime bombing that killed eight people and injured dozens on a bus full of Israeli tourists was most likely a suicide attack, Bulgaria's interior minister said Thursday.
The suspect was reported to have been carrying a Michigan state issued license.
After further investigation, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borisov says that the Michigan license carried by the suspected suicide attacker in the bombing of a bus carrying Israeli tourists was a fake.
Borisov said Thursday "we worked on this with colleagues from the FBI and CIA. They said that there is no such person in their database." He did not release a name.
Borisov says he has asked for the release of a photo of the suspect taken from a security camera from the area before the attack, which gutted the bus at the airport in the Black Sea resort city of Burgas on Wednesday.
Earlier, officials lowered the death toll to seven, including the suspected bomber, after mistakenly reporting that someone had died overnight.
