The Bulgarian government had information of a planned terrorist attack in the country weeks before the July 18 terrorist attack in Burgas, according to opposition Bulgarian Socialist Party MP Kornelia Ninova.

Ninova said this at Saturday's sitting of the Socialists' National Council in Sofia.

"The cabinet had information of an imminent real danger of a terrorist attack two or three weeks before the Burgas Airport terror strike," said the opposition MP.

"I mean the Council of Ministers yearly report on national security which was approved and adopted just before the tragic events in Burgas," said Ninova.

The socialist said she will not comment further, so as not to spread out controversy.

The terror attack on July 18 claimed the lives of 5 Israeli tourists, their Bulgarian driver, and a presumed suicide bomber at the Burgas Airport.

Ninova is not the first to reveal that Bulgaria's report on national security for 2011 expressly mentions that there is a real danger for a terrorist attack to occur in the country.
