Police found more explosives in Palestinian embassy

Czech police say they found another explosive device in the new building of the Palestinian embassy in Prague, according to the news website novinky.cz. The explosive was reportedly hidden in a book and was found during a search of the building following the blast that killed the ambassador, Jamal al-Jamal, on New Year’s Day.

Police also found unregistered weapons at the embassy. Palestinian officials said they were donated by former Czechoslovakia’s communist authorities. The Palestinians have meanwhile officially apologized to the Czech Republic for storing weapons at the Prague embassy.
