Police: Weapons found at Palestinian embassy came from 1970s, 80s

Illegally-held firearms that were found at the Palestinian embassy in Prague came from the 1970s and 80s and have not been used in criminal activities, the Czech police have said. The police found four sub-machine guns and eight pistols along with an explosive at the embassy in January; the building was searched following a blast that killed the Palestinian ambassador to Prague on New Year’s Day. The causes of the incident are under investigation; meanwhile, the Palestinians have officially apologized for the illegal weapons and the explosion to the Czech Foreign Ministry.
