Prague, Czech Republic - Heightened security measures in Prague are being relaxed because the danger posed by a terrorist threat to Jewish interests in the Czech capital has subsided, the city’s mayor said.  “Apparently, the security risks have decreased,” Pavel Bem said in a statement. “For us, it means we are returning to normal.”  Authorities have yet to give details of the threat that has had the capital on high alert since Sept. 23 after foreign intelligence sources warned of an imminent threat.  Bem was the first politician to provide any details about the alleged plot. “Apparently the security threats were linked to the celebration of the Jewish holiday Rosh Hashanah and the following Yom Kippur,” Bem was quoted as saying. “It is also evident that they were aimed at Jewish sites not only in the central part of the city,” he was quoted as saying. Bem did not elaborate.
