Bulgaria's police have already interrogated scores of eyewitnesses and people close to the case with the blast that destroyed the car of popular Bulgarian journalist, Sasho Dikov, Thursday evening.

The information was reported Sunday by the Bulgarian 24 Chassa (24 Hours) daily, citing the Head Secretary of the Interior Ministry, Chief Commissar, Kalin Georgiev.

Georgiev had declined comments on the police having any suspects and leads over the fact such revelations could impede the probe, but stated they know how the bomb was set off and what explosive was used.

The bomb exploded around 10 pm Thursday in front of the apartment building in the Sofia Gotse Delchev district where Dikov, program director of the Kanal 3 (Channel 3) TV, lives. The explosion rattled neighbors and broke window glass at nearby buildings, but, fortunately, no one was injured.

It was reported Saturday that police are working on four possible leads in the blast.
