The trial has begun of four men accused of planning a terrorist attack on a train in the Czech Republic. One of the defendants, anarchist Martin Ignačák, told the Prague Municipal Court that the idea of carrying out acts of violence had come from undercover police officers who had infiltrated their group. He said the police agents had bought materials to produce petrol bombs and selected the location for an attack. According to the indictment in the case, Mr. Ignačák, Petr Sova and police agents buried materials for making petrol bombs near a railway bridge in April 2015. The pair were among a group of people arrested a week later.
