News the HP Has Covered: Bulgaria Bombing

The Huffington Post has covered the recent news that the Bulgarian police have followed up on the murder of six Israeli tourists last year and have declared Hezbollah and its Iranian sponsor to be the ones behind it:
"SOFIA, Bulgaria (AP) — Bulgaria has linked Lebanon's militant group Hezbollah to the bomb attack on a bus last July that killed five Israeli tourists. 
Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsevtnov says two of the suspects linked to the bombing had entered the country with an Australian and a Canadian passport. 
He says "we have established that the two were members of the militant link of Hezbollah." 
Speaking Tuesday after a meeting of the country's National Security Council, the minister said Bulgaria expects "the government of Lebanon to assist" in the investigation. 
Investigators say a Canadian and an Australian are suspects in a remote-controlled bomb attack that killed Israeli tourists in Bulgaria. 
Authorities also said that evidence in the bombing pointed back to Lebanon and to the Islamist militant group Hezbollah. 
Hezbollah has denied involvement."
Check out the headline:


All well and good. That being said, it remains to be seen whether the Bulgaria bombing will gather even a fraction of the coverage that the perfectly legal killing of Mahoud Al-Mabhouh did on the Huffington Post. Not to mention the hundreds of comments of hate that that coverage spawned.
