Police inspection probes Frenštát blast

The Czech security forces inspection has launched a probe into whether the police could have prevented last month’s explosion in an apartment building in the northern town of Frenštát which killed six people, a spokeswoman for the agency said on Thursday. The explosion, deliberately set off by one of the residents, was reportedly preceded by a series of conflicts between the man and his neighbours. The tenant, who reportedly faced eviction from his apartment, died in the explosion.
