Over a dozen suspicious-looking objects that caused a security scare in Prague on Monday have turned out to be harmless. The police was alerted to 16 small plastic devices that someone had attached to street lamps in Prague’s Lesser Town and explosives experts were called in to dismantle them. A police spokeswoman said on Tuesday that the devices had been attached to the street lamps by magnets and contained nothing potentially dangerous. Police are searching for the culprit. The Czech Republic has stepped up security in the wake of US warnings of a possible terrorist attack in Europe. Tightened security measures are in place at airports, railway stations and bus terminals as well as around foreign embassies and high-risk facilities.
