International media carrying footage of Czech president staggering at ceremony
A number of international media outlets are carrying video footage of the Czech president staggering in public, with several headlines posing the question of whether he may have been inebriated. The Huffington Post and the websites of the Daily Mail, the Washington Post, USA Today and other newspapers have posted the video, which at one point shows the head of state propping himself up against a wall; it comes from a ceremony last Thursday in which the Czech crown jewels were removed from the vault where they are normally stored. Mr. Zeman had previously been at an event at Prague’s Russian Embassy but denies having been under the influence. A spokesperson said he had contracted a virus.
