The police have arrested a man suspected of making hoax bomb threats in Prague.
The caller said he had placed explosives in the Anděl shopping centre in Prague’s Smichov district and demanded ten million crowns.
The centre was closed for six hours on Monday and nearby traffic was rerouted as explosives experts searched the building. A similar threat was made the next day.
If convicted the man would face up to 12 years in jail.
