Prague Metro building anti-terrorist protection

The whole world 20th March 1995 watched the news in shock. Tokyo underground passengers were attacked by sarine gas by a religious cult Óm Shincrio. Back then, the gas killed twelve people and health of 54 was severely damaged. Over a thousand of passengers ended in hospitals.

Since then, Prague underground worked on security system. In one year, the Prague Metro should become the best protected underground in the world. Devices installed should identify slightest leak of dangerous chemical substances and immediately warn police and Metro security.

Anyway the magistrate doesn’t want to reveal details of security system, as it is a matter of classified information. The public in Prague mostly doesn’t even know there has been security system being developed for ten years.
