Iran TV: Links to attack on Israelis 'ridiculous'
Iran state TV rejects 'ridiculous' Israeli claims of Tehran links to Bulgaria blast
By The Associated Press

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) Iran's state TV is rejecting accusations of Tehran's involvement in an apparent suicide attack against Israeli tourists in Bulgaria that killed at least eight people.

A commentary Thursday on the TV website calls the claims by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and others "ridiculous" and "sensational."

The website described the Israeli charges as attempts to discredit Iran and its allies such as Syria.

There have been no official statements by Iranian authorities since the Wednesday attack in the Black Sea city of Burgas. Israeli officials and media say the death toll includes six Israelis and two Bulgarians.

The bombing is the latest in a string of attacks and plots around the world that Israel has blamed on Iran.

Iran has denied involvement.
