Chemical experts are analyzing the contents of several containers which were dumped near a brook in the town of Chomutov. Passers-by alerted the police to the find on Saturday and the local fire brigade was called to deal with the emergency. The head of the operation said later that there had been no contamination of soil or water. One of the containers was allegedly labelled sodium cyanide. Police are working to trace the individual or company which dumped the chemicals.
