When Czech islamophobes staged a mock "Islamic state invasion" on the Old Town Square in Prague to mark the 48th anniversary of the 1968 Warsaw Pact invasion on Sunday 21st August, this provoked panic amongst many foreign tourists in the square. Many of them ran away from the Square in horror to hide in the nearby restaurants. Some people were injured in the stampede.
