More than 60 per cent of the population live in buildings like these.

Bulgaria's Prime Minister Boiko Borisov is on a two-day trip to Israel and the Palestinian territories. In Jerusalem, he paid a visit to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the Old City. He also held talks with his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu. The two men say collaboration in the security sphere to battle threats such as terror group ISIL is already strong.

Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu: "And we are going to discuss all the areas of cooperation in economy, trade, security and in many, many other fields and in technology between Bulgaria and Israel."
