Blast kills Palestinian diplomat in Prague

A Palestinian diplomat has been killed by an explosion at his home in the Czech capital Prague.

Jamal al-Jamal, the head of the Palestinian mission, had been taken to hospital after the explosion but died of his injuries some four hours later.

Palestinian officials said the blast happened when Mr Jamal was moving a safe. Czech police say there is no evidence that it was a planned attack.
