PARIS (Sputnik) — Hollande was scheduled to pay an official visit to the Czech Republic on July 27. He was due to meet with his Czech counterpart Milos Zeman, as well as with Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka.
Hollande was initially set to visit the Czech Republic on July 20, as part of his tour to a number of European countries aimed to discuss reforming the European Union following the public vote in the United Kingdom to leave the bloc, but the tour was postponed after the terrorist attack in Nice.
According to the media reports, one of the attackers tried to go to Syria via Turkey in 2015 but was detained and extradited to France, where he was put in prison.
Daesh is a radical Sunni group notorious for its human rights abuses. It has claimed responsibility for a number of major terrorist attacks staged in different parts of the world. The jihadist group is outlawed in a number of countries, including Russia and the United States.
