[:en]An assassination attempt on German Chancellor Angela Merkel has reportedly been foiled in Prague.

Merkel was traveling from the airport to the city when the suspicious Black Mercedes appeared. He tried to enter the motorcade and cut off a police vehicle that was trying to stop him. He only stopped and got out of the vehicle after the police warned of shooting him.

Czech police arrested the man today and police spokesman Jozef Bocan said the suspect was in custody.
