Bulgaria’s Premier Boyko Borissov convened an extraordinary sitting of the Bulgarian services and the Prosecutor’s Office over the terrorist act in Christchurch, New Zealand which claimed the lives of 50 Muslims. The weapons of the main terrorist contain inscriptions on Serbian, Georgian, Russian, German, English and names from the Bulgarian history referencing to famous battles against the Ottoman Empire. We see many things linked with this region, which is extremely worrying and shows that the terrorist act was well-prepared. The services should say whether the perpetrators visited this region, the Chairman of the Parliamentary group of GERB party Tsvetan Tsvetanov commented.
