DOKKEN singer Don Dokken tells TMZ.com that he came dangerously close to becoming a victim in last week’s Bulgaria suicide bombing. According to Don (see video below), he was on the same bus that was bombed just one day before the deadly explosion.
The July 18 terrorist attack in Bulgaria’s Burgas killed 5 Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver at the Sarafovo Airport near Burgas. The bomb was reportedly exploded by remote control after the bomber was challenged by two Israeli men who were killed in the explosion.
The bombing was reportedly the work of Hezbollah operatives backed by Iran. However, Iran has denied any involvement in the bombing.
DOKKEN performed on June 14 at the Kavarna Rock festival in Kavarna, Bulgaria.
