(CNN) – Reacting to the deadly explosion on a bus carrying Israeli tourists in Bulgaria, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Wednesday released the following statement:
"The terrorist attack today in Bulgaria is a sobering reminder that the scourge of terrorism continues to threaten all free people. My heart goes out to the victims and their families, and to all Israelis who have been the targets of such brutal and cowardly violence for so long. We must stand together in the fight against terrorism, and we must prevail."
While key Israeli politicians pointed to Iran as the likely instigator, Romney made no mention of the country in his response.
