24-04-2018 updated

Czech police have detained seven foreigners suspected of carrying out a brutal attack on a waiter over the weekend.

The injured man was taken to hospital in a serious condition and has undergone an operation on his head. The group was detained at Prague airport after some passengers recognised them following widespread media coverage of the attack.

The attack in the centre of Prague was reportedly sparked after the waiter told them they were not allowed to bring in alcohol to consume on the premises.

Police later said the detained were Dutch and that five out of seven of them had been charged.
