(PRAGUE) — Palestinian diplomat Jamal al-Jamal was killed by an explosion in his Prague home on Wednesday.
Palestinian officials do not believe the explosion was part of an assassination attempt. The BBC News reports that the explosion occurred after the diplomat was moving or opening a safe from an old residence to the new building.
It was unclear whether anyone else was hurt in the blast.
