Interior Minister Oliver Spasovski again said that the reports about gas and pyrotechnics being smuggled in the ill fated bus that burnt down in Bulgaria with the loss of at least 44 lives are speculations.

Such comments harm the investigation instead of helping. According to my information, there is absolutely no talk about cans of gasoline that could have caused the disaster, Spasovski told the Bulgarian bTV.

Bulgarian prosecutors are conducting the investigation, and Macedonia is merely helping provide information, conduct DNA tests to identify the bodies and is also investigating how did the bus leave the country even though it wasn’t on the approved list put together by the Transportation Ministry.
