The district judge in the north Bohemian town of Decin on Sunday took into custody an ethnic Albanian man from Kosovo, one of the gang who shot dead a 33-year-old Romany in the nearby community of Varnsdorf last week.

He was identified by the police as one of the men who fired shots during a conflict with members of the local Roma community.

The police said they were holding another two Albanians and were pressing charges against eight people.

The victim, Jiri Bily, was buried in Varnsdorf on Saturday. The funeral, attended by hundreds of Romanies and a substantial police force, passed without incidents.
