Dozens of Chinese flags placed on the road from Prague Airport into the city ahead of a visit by Chinese President Xi Yinping on Monday were vandalised on Friday night. Unknown perpetrators marked the flags, which were put up by the Czech-Chinese Mixed Chamber for Mutual Cooperation, with dark paint, the police said. The spokesman of Czech President Milošs Zeman said political and moral responsibility for the damage lay with the TOP 09 major of Prague 6, who said he sympathised with such actions.
