Boys’ choir targeted by youths

A Romany boys’ choir, including an eight-year-old boy, was accosted by a group of five youths on Friday, seeing punches thrown, kicking and bullying. Respected performer Ida Kelarová, the choir leader, revealed the information; but, she said, the attack was not racially-motivated. The police are searching for the group of five; the youths could be charged with disorderly conduct. None of the boys needed medical treatment, suffering only bruises or scratches; the choir had been due to perform at the Wannieck Gallery in Brno.
