Radical Bartoš arrested over call for "highest punishment" for politicians

Police have arrested radical campaigner Adam B. Bartoš after he called for the "highest punishment" for Czech politicians; he said they deserved this fate for the "treason" of allowing migrants into the Czech Republic. Mr. Bartoš, who heads the group National Democracy, made the comment at a demonstration in Prague on Saturday against "Islamisation", politicians, the media and non-governmental organisations. His arrest sparked scuffles between his supporters and the police.
