Czech plastic gun attacker gets by bodyguards

PRAGUE (AP) - Officials say a man has attacked Czech President Vaclav Klaus with a plastic gun. Presidential spokesman Radim Ochvat says Klaus was not injured in Friday's incident in the northern town of Chrastava where he was opening a new bridge. Police spokeswoman Stepanka Zatloukalova says the man opened fire at Klaus from close range with a plastic pistol that uses small plastic balls as bullets. A 26-year-old man has been arrested. Zatloukalova had no more details immediately. It is not clear why the president's bodyguards did not intervene in time.
