Palestinian diplomat killed in blast at Prague residence

The Palestinian ambassador to Prague, Jamal al-Jamal, was killed in an explosion at his residence on Wednesday in an incident which Czech authorities believe was likely an accident.

The Palestinian Foreign Ministry said ambassador Jamal was trying to open a safe that had been recently moved to his new home when the blast occurred. A Czech government source told the Reuters news agency that the explosion was probably caused by a faulty security device on the unit.

It was unclear what that was. Some safes can be fitted with mechanisms designed to destroy secret documents in the event of the lock being tampered with. The Czech source said the government did not believe it was an attack.

Czech police said the ambassador died of his injuries in hospital after the explosion on the morning of New Year’s Day in the two-storey suburban residence. No one else was injured, police said, although Jamal’s family was at home at the time.

No signs of damage to the house were visible from the street.

Police cordoned off part of the street and a half dozen police vehicles, fire trucks and two ambulances were there.

The Palestinian Foreign Ministry said it would send a delegation to Prague “to help with the investigation”.

Was probably using the safe to ship suicide vests. Went off before they had a chance to pass them out.

Moslems often die when their IED’s detonate unexpectedly.

He was probably the courier to get bomb materials into Prague for moslem footsoldiers to attack the public.

Ancient moslem proverb: Never drop the diplomatic pouch.

So you’re saying this diplomat had explosive devices/materials in/near a safe in Diplomatic residence and it was an accident? Technically, that term may be true, but there is WAAY more to this than anyone is saying? no?

~~~Some safes can be fitted with mechanisms designed to destroy secret documents~~~

So what happened to the documents?

Was this a guy who supported suicide bombers attacking?

If so, off the alluh. A lie, just like the 72 virgins thingy.

Maybe #9 .... I would have to know more about what this guy was about.

There were certain Palis who would tip off the Israelis about jihadists -— Yasser Arafat had them executed and put on public display.

Too bad he wasn’t scattered with a Hellfire.

“Some safes can be fitted with mechanisms designed to destroy secret documents in the event of the lock being tampered with.”

Some safes are filled with diplomatic C-4 smuggled in diplomatic pouches by diplomatic pretenders for use in the delicate work of Palestinian diplomacy.

Lucky for the rest of the terrorists that he wasn’t trying to open an unsafe. Faulty Suicide Security Device ping. Thanks csvset.

That was my first thought. Smuggling weapons through a diplomat would be one of the safest ways to do it, considering he has diplomatic immunity. Although the immunity didn't mean much to that bomb.
