Likely no Czechs among London bomb victims: Paroubek

The Czech prime minister, Jiri Paroubek, said it appeared no Czech citizens were among the victims of Thursday's bombings in London. Mr Paroubek was speaking after a meeting of the National Security Council on Friday evening. However, two Czechs thought to have been in London at the time of the attacks have not yet contacted their families.

The heightened security measures introduced in the Czech Republic following Thursday's blasts remain in place, with extra police on duty at strategic locations.
