Security forces in Bulgaria raided more than 40 homes and a mosque in the south of the country on Tuesday and seized books and computers of individuals linked to terrorism.


The popular private bTV channel showed armed police detaining Muslim prayer leader Ahmed Mussa at a mosque in the city of Pazardzhik, while local media said several other people were also detained.

The operation was part of a pre-trial investigation of crimes linked with anti-democratic ideologies and incitement to violence, the State Agency for National Security said in a statement.

“Some 40 addresses have been searched so far and numerous pieces of evidence seized,” it said.

The agency and the prosecutors’ office declined to provide further information or give the number of people detained during the raids in the cities of Pazardzhik, Plovdiv, Smolyan, Haskovo and Asenovgrad.

Mussa was sentenced to a year in jail for spreading radical Islam last March in a case seen as a test for the delicate relations between the country’s minority Muslims and Orthodox Christian majority. He was free pending appeal.

A former Christian who converted to Islam in 2000 while working in Vienna, he was convicted on the same charge in 2003.

Bulgaria is one of the few countries in Europe who has an “indigenous” Muslim population, mainly Turks left over from the occupation.  They have been itching to retake the country for a long time, but in the Balkans, unlike in the rest of Europe, people remember what Muslims are and what it is like to live under their rule.
