PRAGUE, April 29 (Itar-Tass) - Six foreigners, including a Portuguese citizen and a Slovakian citizen, are among 36 people, who were wounded in a blast that went off in downtown Prague on Monday, head of the Prague Ambulance Service Zdenek Schwarz told a press briefing at the Prague Mayor’s Office.
He confirmed that no one died in the incident. “A total of 36 people got different wounds, including 35 people with light wounds,” he said.
The Russian Embassy in the Czech Republic told Itar-Tass earlier on Monday that no Russians were injured in the blast.
Meanwhile, an official from the Prague Mayor’s Office told a press briefing that the blast that rocked the Divadelni Street in downtown Prague on Monday, was not a terrorist act.
The available reports confirm the version that the household gas exploded in the basement of a multi-storey residential house, he noted. The Prague authorities will provide the temporary housing for the dwellers evacuated from the neighbouring houses.
