Czech Republic: Bomb threats across the country

Railway stations and public spaces in three cities in the Czech Republic have been evacuated after warnings of a terror attack involving up to ten bombs.

The national police force received an anonymous tip-off this morning, sparking a major response in the capital Prague and the cities of Pardubice and Plzen.

Authorities said they were informed that a bomb had been left at the central railway station in Prague and at other places across the country.

A primary school in Prague was also among the buildings evacuated while three squares in the city including Namestí Republiky were taped off by police.

Police chief Marketa Janovska told the local media: ‘An anonymous person informed us by telephone that there were bombs at the central railway station in Prague and other places across the Czech Republic.’
