Topic: Gunman opens fire in Czech restaurant, killing eight

By Petra Vodstrcilova PRAGUE (Reuters) - A man shot dead eight people in a restaurant in an eastern Czech town on Tuesday and then killed himself, the town's mayor said. "I have been given information that it was a 60-year-old local man, probably mentally unstable," the mayor, Patrik Kuncar, told Czech television. "We can see that, here, probably, a lone shooter struck with no warning." The broadcaster said the attacker fired about 25 rounds at lunchtime in the Druzba, or "friendship", restaurant in a residential district of the town of Uhersky Brod, 300 km (180 miles) southeast of Prague. Such shooting incidents are very rare in the Czech Republic, a central European country of 10.5 million.
