11-12-2016 updated

Passengers and staff were evacuated from Prague's Main Station on Saturday night after an anonymous caller warned a bomb had been hidden at the site. The police have since arrested a 39-year-old suspect with a criminal record. In all, the suspect threatened seven sites, including hospitals. In the case of the station, several thousand commuters were affected. Trains ready to do so, departed, and further trains were turned away for more than one hour as the police searched the premises. Metro transport below the station continued uninterrupted but trains did not stop but only passed through.
