Ten new security cameras began operating on Charles Bridge on Friday. Prague city hall installed the cameras in response to a number of acts of vandalism targeting statues on the Czech capital's most famous monument. The cameras will allow for events on Charles Bridge to be monitored twenty four hours a day by state and city police. Of the thirty one statues on Charles Bridge, eighteen have already been vandalised or damaged in some way.
