Czech Republic to introduce security threat scale

The Czech authorities will introduce a four point security threat scale for emergencies, Interior Minister Milan Chovancec said after a meeting of the National Security Council on Tuesday. The council met to hear the results of a security audit undertaken by the Interior Ministry in the wake of the Paris attacks and discuss a proposed anti-terror package. The interior minister said that there was no immediate threat to the country and the present situation did not require amendments to the law.
