Israel pointed the finger at Iran Wednesday after a deadly explosion on a bus carrying Israeli tourists outside Bulgaria's Burgas Airport that killed at least six people and wounded at least 32, CNN reports. "All the signs [are] leading to Iran," said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, adding that Israel "would respond with force to Iranian terror." Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said the explosion was "clearly a terrorist attack" probably initiated by a group under the auspices of "either Iran or other radical Muslim groups" such as Hezbollah or Hamas.
