Suchdol mayor calls for Palestinian embassy to move

The mayor of Suchdol, Petr Hejl, has met with Deputy Foreign Minister Jiří Schneider to voice his concerns over public safety in the wake of an incident last week at the Palestinian embassy in the Prague district. Palestine’s ambassador was killed in an explosion when a safe was opened and several unlicensed weapons were subsequently found at the embassy, leading the local authority to call for the diplomatic office to be moved. Mr. Schneider said the Foreign Ministry shared the mayor’s concerns and was taking steps in connection with the matter.
