Pilsen suburb evacuated over bomb threat

27-10-2014

Over a hundred people were evacuated from their homes in a Pilsen suburb early on Monday due to a bomb threat. The police closed off part of a residential area close to a shopping mall after an anonymous caller warned that there was a grenade planted just outside the mall. Pyrotechnic experts later found a functional F-1 grenade on the premises. Police are now checking footage from security cameras in the vicinity and questioning witnesses.
