Czech Foreign Ministry confirms getting threat in the mail
The Czech Foreign Ministry on Friday confirmed receiving a similar threat in the mail as the Office of the President and the Office of the Government earlier this week. All three institutions received an envelope containing a white powder and a threat sent in the name of the Islamic State. It slammed the Czech Republic for sending ammunition to Kurdish forces in Iraq which are fighting against the IS. The powder contained in the letter sent to Prague Castle was found to be harmless. Interior Minister Milan Chovanec said on Friday that it appeared to be the work of one individual.
