Anti-Muslim campaigner Martin Konvička caused panic on Sunday when he staged what the Czech News Agency described as a “mock Islamic State invasion of the Czech Republic” on Prague’s Old Town Square. Mr. Konvička arrived at the event on a camel followed by a personnel carrier of “fighters” shouting Allahu Akbar and firing replica guns into the air. After the shooting many passers-by started fleeing and the police and a City Hall official halted the event. The police are now investigating whether the crime of spreading false alarm was committed during the event.
