One man was severely injured in a bomb blast that rocked the town of Sandanski in southwestern Bulgaria on June 29. The man was taken to hospital and was in intensive care, having suffered extensive damage to one arm and his stomach, news agency Focus reported, citing doctors at the Sandanski hospital. The bomb blast occurred shortly before 6am local time, in front of the local office of the Euroroma political party, reports said. It detonated when the man picked up a package left in front of the building, reports said. “I hope that this is not politically-motivated. We are reasonable enough people in Bulgaria, a member state of the European Union and Nato, not to solve our political differences with bomb blasts, so I have no explanation for what has happened,” Euroroma leader Tsvetelin Kunchev told private television station bTV.
