Hamas trio told to get out of Bulgaria

Bulgaria has ordered three visiting Palestinian politicians from the Islamist movement Hamas to leave the country, saying they posed a security risk.

The expulsions came a week after Bulgaria blamed Lebanese Islamist group Hezbollah for a bomb attack in the Black Sea city of Burgas last July that killed five Israeli tourists and a local driver, fuelling a European Union debate over whether it should be blacklisted alongside Hamas.
