Assassination attempt on German Chancellor Angela Merkel

Czech Police have arrested a man after a suspected assassination attempt on German Chancellor Angela Merkel was foiled. Neither Merkel nor anyone else was affected, 'The Mirror' has reported.

An armed man in a black Mercedes 4×4 has been detained after he allegedly tried to infiltrate Angela Merkel’s motorcade during her trip to Prague, a police spokesman said.

" The perpetrator has been detained,” police spokesman Josef Bocan said. "He is suspected of attempting to cause a crime – specifically an attempt to use violence against an official.”

Earlier, hundreds of protesters, including members of anti-Islam groups, demonstrated in central Prague against Merkel and her decision to open the EU’s doors to refugees and migrants last summer.
