Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic has sent a letter to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu extending his condolences for the death of Israeli tourists killed in an explosion in Bulgaria, the croatian government said in a statement on Thursday, adding that Milanovic condemned the terrorist attack.

A suicide bomber carried out an attack that killed seven people in a bus transporting Israeli tourists outside Bulgaria's Burgas airport.

The tourists had arrived in Bulgaria on a charter flight from Israel and were on the bus in the airport car park when the blast tore through the vehicle. Body parts were strewn across the ground, mangled metal hung from the double-decker bus's ripped roof and black smoke billowed over the airport. (Hina)
