Police charge track marshal over rally deaths

The police have charged a 22-year-old man over the deaths of four girls who died in an accident during last November’s rally race in Lopeník, in the east of the country. The girls were killed by a car which swerved off the track; the police said the man, in his capacity as a track marshal, had failed to order them out of the restricted zone. If convicted, the man faces up to six years in prison.
