Bulgarian Foreign Minister postpones wedding over Paris terrorist attacks

Bulgarian Foreign Minister Daniel Mitov has postponed his wedding that was scheduled for November 14, because of the fatal terrorist attacks in Paris the night before.

France has declared three days of national mourning because of the attacks, in which at least 127 people were killed.

Mitov had been scheduled to marry British citizen Melanie Woodward on Saturday, with a church ceremony and reception at Sofia’s Central Military Club planned, to have been attended by a large number of senior Bulgarian state and goverment officials.

The ceremony, to have begun at noon, was instead postponed. Around that time, Mitov – who earlier in the morning had issued a statement condemning the terrorist attacks in the French capital – joined other top government officials at a special meeting called by Prime Minister Boiko Borissov of the security and migration council in response to the attacks in France.
