Czech police tighten security measures

The Czech police have tightened security measures in reaction to the terrorist attacks in Norway on Friday, police spokesman Jan Melsa confirmed; he described the measures taken as preventative. Patrols at Czech airports and at key areas in the capital and around the country were heightened as of Friday afternoon. The spokesman said the measures would not directly affect citizens. He also stressed that the police do not have any information that the Czech Republic was facing any danger. The police are, however, assessing the situation in coordination with foreign colleagues.
