The bus set ablaze at Burgas Airport in Bulgaria is thought to have been carrying a large party of young Israelis. Witnesses told Israeli media that the huge blast occurred soon after someone boarded the vehicle.
Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Jonathan Rosenzweig said a flight from Tel Aviv had landed at 4:45pm and that the blast took place about 40 minutes later.
"We don't know if it was a terror attack," said Paul Hirschson, another spokesman for the ministry. "We do know it was an explosion."
An Israeli witness at the airport where the blast occurred has said in a phone interview with Israeli Army Radio that the explosion was probably caused by a suicide bomber at the entrance to the bus.
