Around 200 people in the village of Číhošť in the Vysočina region held a ceremony on Sunday marking the anniversary of the death of local priest Josef Toufar on February 25 1950. Toufar was accused of faking a miracle in the form of a moving cross in his church in late 1949. The Communist secret police forced him into a confession and he died as a consequence of the torture he experienced.
