The Czech republic will observe a day of national mourning tomorrow after yesterday’s mass shooting in Prague which left 14 people dead.

Police said the gunman killed himself on the balcony of the university building as police closed in. Officers are also investigating whether the gunman – named locally as David Kozak – was also behind the death of a man and his baby daughter in a forest near the city last week.
