Hmm, my last post kept posting incorrectly with bad formatting. Not sure why. Here's another try at posting:
Bulgarian media is still saying they found 3 bullets in the pistol, all of them containing pepper spray or something similar. It could kill from very close contact, for example if fired directly into the eyes. But that would have to be from less than 5cm away.
This is copied from an email off a Bulgarian friend earlier. I've got several Bulgarian friends and they all think the same, and claim mainstream media in Sofia is disagreeing completely with Western media.
Most Bulgarians think this is nothing but a PR stunt. Dogan was losing votes. Dogan is Muslim and "fights" for the Muslim rights in Bulgaria. He knew this is going to go international! Bear in mind the gunman didn't shoot. He had the perfect opportunity but he didn't. Watch the video again, the gunman wasn't even trying to press the trigger. All was faked just to bring attention to that particular party, which many people dislike because of its Turkish links.
I'm still not sure what to think... maybe some Bulgarian members of A.net can comment?[Edited 2013-01-19 16:59:55]
