Blast Kills Palestinian Diplomat in Czech Republic

Some surprising but unsurprising news out of Eastern Europe. An explosion in the home of the diplomat Jamal al-Jamal mortally wounded him and he died four hours later. Jamal is from the PLO-dominated Palestinian Authority and not from the Hamas-dominated administration of Gaza.

It may have been an accident, though:
Mr Jamal had only recently moved into the property.

Palestinian officials have been quoted as saying the blast took place when Mr Jamal attempted to move a safe from an old embassy building to the new one.

"The device was in a safe and was triggered after the door of the safe was opened. The police are not ruling out that the device was a part of the safe," Czech police spokeswoman Andrea Zoulova told Reuters.
