A group of prosecutors and investigators from Bulgaria arrived to Macedonia today, mainly to begin collecting DNA samples from families who lost loved ones in the bus disaster on Tuesday morning.

45 bodies were found in the burnt wreck of the BESA Tours bus and many will have to be identified using DNA tests. There is suspicion that some of the passengers changed vehicles with other Skopje bound buses who were returning from Istanbul at the same time. After all bodies have been identified, they will be returned to Macedonia for burial.
