Watch Failed Assassination Attempt Caught On Video

Before It’s News – by Live Free or Die

Wow! Somebody is truly watching over this man! The leader of Bulgaria‘s opposition Movement for Rights and Freedoms, Ahmet Dogan, escaped an apparent assassination attempt Saturday while addressing a party congress in Sofia, local media reported.

The attacker pointed a gun at Dogan, but was prevented from firing, according to the reports. While security wrestled with the attacker, Dogan was tackled to the ground by his bodyguards.

The party, which mainly represents the Turkish minority in Bulgaria, had called the convention to elect a new leadership. Dogan, 58, has led the party since founding it in 1990.

After taking part in the governing coalition, the party switched to the opposition following the 2009 elections, which were won by the conservative Gerb party of Prime Minister Boyko Borisov.

Following reports of the attack, Borisov ordered Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov to attend the Movement for Rights and Freedoms congress.

  1. What the hell was that? A misfire? Man this guy was one lucky Bulgarian! The shooter probably wishes he was dead after being kicked with all of those goofy looking pointed shoes.

  2. I know nothing of their politics or situation but one has to wonder if this was staged. Probably a jammed gun or the bozo left the safety on but it still makes me wonder. I had always expected something like this to happen with Obama and have the blame placed on patriots or conservatives.

    1. The first thing that struck me when I saw this was: HOW did this clown get past security?

      Something fishy about that one.
