Bulgaria's Foreign Minister Nikolay Mladenov has condemned the bomb attack that shocked Norway's capital Oslo Friday afternoon.
"Bulgaria condemns today's terrorist attack in Oslo, in which innocent people have been hurt," Mladenov declared Friday night on the incident in the Norwegian capital in which at least 7 people have perished.
"This act committed in a busy spot of the city and in proximity of the office of Norway's Prime Minister is absolutely unacceptable from both a political and a human point of view. I express our most sincere condolences to the relatives of those killed and injured," Bulgaria's Foreign Minister said.
"Bulgaria supports our Norwegian partners and friends in this difficult moment," he added.
The explosions rocked Norway's government headquarters in the downtown at around 3:30 pm CET on Friday; this was followed by a gunman attack on a Norway Labor Party youth camp on the island of Utoya where several persons are reported to have been killed as well.
