Vigils in Several Bulgarian Towns in Memoriam of the Raped and Killed Journalist

Hundreds of people in several Bulgarian cities honored the memory of the 30-year-old journalist who was brutally killed on Saturday. Vigils in her memory were organized in Sofia, Burgas, Ruse, Stara Zagora, Pleven, Yambol, Vratsa, Vidin and Plovdiv, NOVA reported.

In the capital, people gathered in front of the church of St. Nedelya, where they lit candles and brought flowers in front of a picture of Victoria. Attendants are insisting on an investigation. There is still no suspect of the murder.

The European Commission and the German government urged Bulgarian authorities to bring to justice those responsible for the brutal killing of the journalist. The commission vice-president, Frans Timmermans tweeted: “Again a courageous journalist falls in the fight for truth and against corruption. Those responsible should be brought to justice immediately by the Bulgarian authorities.

Sven Giegold, a German member of the European Parliament, urged the European Parliament to send a delegation to Bulgaria.
