Widow says kept in dark over Palestinian terrorist’s mystery death in Sofia

The widow of a Palestinian terrorist who died under mysterious circumstances in Bulgaria last month accused authorities on Wednesday of keeping her in the dark about their investigation. Omar Nayef, who was wanted by Israel over the killing of a Jewish settler three decades ago, was found dead in the courtyard of the Palestinian

embassy in Sofia on February 26. Local media reported that the 51-year-old had fallen from the fourth floor, while a senior Palestinian Authority official said he had suffered “serious torso injuries”. Nayef’s widow accuses Israel of assassinating him. On Wednesday, the widow and her three children staged a protest outside the court of justice in the Bulgarian capital Sofia. “The authorities have not given us any details about the medical examination or released my husband’s body so I can bury him,” she told AFP. She threatened to take the case to the European Court of Justice “if the outcome… isn’t announced soon”.
