MOSCOW, July 20 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has sent a telegram of condolences to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in connection with the death of Israeli nationals in a terrorist act at the airport of Burgas, Bulgaria, the government press service reports.
“This barbarous crime cannot be justified, all those involved in masterminding it must suffer severe punishment,” the telegram said. “I ask you to convey words of grief and sympathy to the next-of-kin of the dead, and wish an early recovery to the injured,” the Russian prime minister said in the telegram.
Seven people, including five Israelis, died in the bus explosion in Burgas on July 18. Thirty-five Israeli tourists were injured.
