08-02-2012

The police on Wednesday morning evacuated the Czech Republic’s air traffic control centre in Jeneč, on the western outskirts of Prague, over what turned out to be a toolbox, a police spokeswoman said. Dozens of the centre’ administrative staffers had to leave the building; however, air traffic controllers remained at the workplace and the incident had no effect on the safety of air traffic over the country, a spokesman for the agency said.
