Burials begin for 5 Israelis killed in bombing
JERUSALEM (AP) -- Funerals have begun in Israel for victims of Wednesday's bus bombing in Bulgaria.
The somber ceremonies were being held Friday, just hours after Israel's air force flew the five bodies home.
Israeli and American officials are blaming the Iran-backed Lebanese militant Hezbollah for bombing the tourist bus. The investigation continues.
Hundreds joined the family of Itzik Kolengi, 28, at his burial. His wife was injured in the attack and remains hospitalized.
Amir Menashe, 27, was buried shortly after.
The remaining three Israeli victims -- a pregnant woman and two men in their 20s -- were being buried later in the day.
The victims' coffins were received early Friday in a military ceremony at Israel's international airport.
A Bulgarian bus driver and the bomber were also killed in the attack.
