The attacker wearing military camouflage approached Klaus during a ceremony to open a bridge in Chrastava, a village 100 km north of Prague, television footage showed.
He opened fire with a handgun that fires plastic pellets used in a game called airsoft, similar to paintball, Nova TV said on its website.
“You really did not manage this well,” Nova quoted Klaus as telling his bodyguards.
The attacker managed to get within a meter of the leader and walked away after the attack before he was detained by police.
Amazing he got so close with that airsoft gun. Could easy have been a real one.
And when he shoots the bodyguards just stand there like lolwut?
I can't imagine how many casualties there would have been had shots been fired.
