Czech ambassador to visit scene of plant explosion

WACO, TX

Ambassador Petr Gandalovic is scheduled to arrive Thursday in West, which has an honorary consulate in recognition of the significant number of residents in the area with Czech heritage.

Martin Pizinger, spokesman for the Czech embassy in Washington, says Gandalovic "would like to support the community in their time of sadness." Pizinger says the ambassador intends to personally express the support of the Czech Republic.

Gandalovic, ambassador since 2011, has visited West before.

Pizinger says the explosion has dominated headlines in the Czech Republic.
