Czech Diplomats Stopped

The Czech Republic wants to know why Russian police stopped a Czech diplomatic vehicle and demanded that the driver take a breath test, an incident that happened to be witnessed by a local television crew.

The breath exam request was rejected on grounds of diplomatic immunity. A Czech Foreign Ministry spokesman asserted Friday that the car's driver had committed no traffic offense.
