Blast at Palestinian embassy not triggered by safe mechanism

The blast at the Palestinian embassy that killed ambassador Jamal al Jamal on January 1st of this year was not caused by a built in security device as previously thought, according to the results of an ongoing police investigation. According to police spokeswoman Andrea Zoulová a test carried out within the investigation shows that the explosion did not occur inside the safe. The internet news site iDnes says there is reason to believe that the ambassador was holding the explosive in his hands when the blast occurred. Police ruled out foul play early on and are now are investigating the incident as death caused by negligence.
