Palestinian Ambassador to the Czech Republic Jamal Al Jamal, who was injured in an explosion at his house in Prague-Suchdol Wednesday, has died in hospital, police said.

Bomb-disposal experts are searching a neighbouring house that is also owned by the Palestinian embassy, said police spokesperson Andrea Zoulova.

The 56-year-old ambassador officially assumed the post October 11, 2013, when he presented his credentials to Czech President Milos Zeman.
