SOFIA: Bulgaria has asked member countries of the international police organization Interpol to publicize a computer-generated image of the suspect involved in the bombing that killed five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver two weeks ago.    

Interpol said Thursday that it has issued a so-called Black Notice, which is used to seek information about unidentified corpses, to each of its 190 member countries.

The organization, headquartered in Lyon, France, said it is disseminating the image in hopes of engaging the public's help in identifying the man.

Bulgarian experts produced the image of a young dark-haired man after reconstructing the badly damaged face of the suicide bomber, who was decapitated in the explosion at a popular vacation resort on July 18.
