The father of one detained 15-year-old youth in Plovdiv did not suspect the false bomb alerts that his son sent to various institutions and schools in the city.

"The police came, checked his laptop and detained him for 24 hours.

I will not scold him because he is still a child.

I will talk to him that this is not right", said the father Hamid Shihab.

The family lives meters from 6 RU in Plovdiv.

The parent was waiting for information outside the district office building with the family's lawyer.
