Six Czechs were arrested at Frankfurt airport after causing a disruption over delayed flights, the daily Lidové Noviny wrote on Monday. According to the paper the incident happened just ahead of the Christmas holidays when some 250 flights had to be postponed due to a bad snowstorm. With thousands of people crowding the airport, the Czech passengers grew impatient and reportedly caused a scene, demanding refreshments. German police arrested six troublemakers including the country’s honorary consul in Brazil, who reportedly resisted arrest and was manhandled by the police. The Czech consulate in Brazil has confirmed the incident without comment.
