  1. I'm Bulgarian, only the first news appears to be connected to Tor.
    The news about the arrests in Sofia and Plovdiv seem to be separated, the guys were not using Tor.

  2. The "Bulgarian State Agency for National Security" says that worldwide were blocked 410 hidden sites, with 129 of them being Bulgarian. Sounds a bit unrealistic to me, but who knows.
    Nobody was arrested in Bulgaria so far. The agency used "the infrastructure of a hosting company in Bulgaria." They've copied all of the data from the servers of the hidden sites.
