In other words, a ‘work related accident’.
The Palestinian mission is in the process of moving into a new embassy and residence, which share the same compound. Jamal was killed at the new residence.
“The safe was emptied and moved to the house. My father had been putting documents inside it and it was open,” Rana al-Jamal said. “The explosion took place while he used it.”
Weapons found at Palestinian mission in Prague
Daughter claims ambassador was “deliberately killed,” while officials say mishandling of explosive device killed him.
PRAGUE/GAZA – The Palestinian envoy to Prague was ‘deliberately killed’, his daughter alleged on Thursday, a day after he died in a mysterious explosion after opening a safe in his residence.
Czech police said the blast that killed ambassador Jamal al-Jamal might have been caused by mishandling an explosive securing the safe. They said they were not treating it as an attack or a terrorist incident.
