Czech police are launching random checks on vehicles and passengers along its border with Austria on Monday evening, November 2, following a series of shootings in Vienna. The situation in Vienna remains ongoing with at least one perpetrator reportedly still at large. Austria's Federal Ministry of the Interior has called the incident a "terrorist attack" and stated that there are "several injured, probably also dead"; however, casualty details are yet to be confirmed.
A heightened security presence and associated disruptions to transportation are likely in the border area while police carry out operations over the immediate term.
Those in the border area are advised to monitor the situation and heed all instructions issued by local authorities.
