Palestinian envoy dies after 'accidental' Prague blast
PRAGUE (AFP) - The Palestinian ambassador to the Czech Republic died on Wednesday after a blast at his Prague residence that police said was an accident.
The blast was likely caused by an anti-theft system on the door of a safe that Mr Jamal al-Jamal was opening at the time, Prague police said.
The 56-year-old suffered "very serious injuries" in the blast and was taken to Prague's military hospital in an artificial coma, said Ms Jirina Ernestova, spokesman for the emergency services.
Police later confirmed that he had died.
