PRAGUE, January 01, /ITAR-TASS/. The life of Palestinian Ambassador Jamal Muhammad Jamal in the Czech Republic injured as a result of an explosion in his flat in Prague, is not in danger, the spokesperson for the Palestinian Embassy said.
“Mr Ambassador received injuries but they do not put his life at risk,” he said.
Earlier in the day, medics at the city’s military hospital, where the diplomat had been admitted, said his condition was “critical.”
According to preliminary information, the explosion in the diplomat’s flat was not a terrorist act. Local mass media say that it might have been a spontaneous explosion of a smoke-puff charge kept in a safe. As a result of the explosion, the 56-year-old diplomat received hand and leg injuries and burns and was put to medication-induced sleep.
His 52-year-old woman relative, who was in the flat at the time of the incident, was also injured.
Jamal Muhammad Jamal became Palestinian ambassador to the Czech Republic in October 2013 when he presented his credentials to Czech President Milos Zeman.
