Czech police have shelved the investigation into the death of the Palestinian ambassador in Prague Jamal al-Jamal, during an explosion on New Year’s day, the CTK agency has reported. Police did not give further details of the decision, saying that objections might be still made to it. The ambassador was at first thought to have been killed when he opened a safe at the country’s mission in Prague. But police later said that no traces of explosive were found in the safe. Searches at the mission did however find illegal explosive, guns and pistols, a fact which strained relations with the Czech Republic. Suspicions of an attack were early ruled out.
