Woman charged with hate speech in connection with Teplice class photo

A 26-year-old woman has been charged in connection with an incident of hate speech on social networks after a class photo of first-graders in a school in Teplice, which appeared in a regional daily, sparked threats and racist comments.

The reactions to the mix of Czech, Romany, Vietnamese and Arab children in the group photo sparked a shocking reaction on social networks, with remarks that they were a class of terrorists and should be gassed. Police have been investigating the incident for close to a year now.
