It has been revealed that eight people managed to escape from the back door of the pub in Uherský Brod where another eight were shot dead by a gunman on Tuesday. Among those who managed to flee was the operator of the Družba pub, Pavel Karlík. Mr. Karlík said he had been ordered not to discuss the incident but would describe what had happened following the conclusion of a police investigation. He said he and his staff would decide next week whether to reopen the pub.
