Stepanka Zenklova, a spokeswoman for Prague's state prosecution, said the unidentified trio face up to life in prison if tried and convicted of terrorism.

Ms Zenklova added that three other people have also been investigated as suspects in the case, one for illegal weapons and the two others for knowing about the attack plan and failing to intervene.

She said an unspecified dangerous weapon was seized by police during raids last week when officers detained the six suspects. Three of them remain in police custody.
