Intelligence services deny that Prague is high on the list of a terrorist attack

The Czech intelligence services have rejected claims in the press that Prague is high on the list of a future terrorist attack. The daily Pravo wrote in its Saturday edition that an attack on the Czech capital is highly likely, for many reasons, among them the fact that it is a popular destination for Jewish tourists. The daily enumerates several possible scenarios, including bomb explosions in the metro leading under the Vltava river and a plane exploding over Old Town Square. A spokesman for the intelligence service BIS slammed the press report, saying that it bordered on scaremongering. He said the country's intelligence services had no information to suggest that Prague or any other location in the Czech Republic was in serious danger of a terrorist attack.
