Thousands of Czechs protested in an opposition-led rally in Prague in the biggest yet demonstration against President Milos Zeman, who has polarized the nation with pro-Russian and anti-immigrant rhetoric. The demonstration follows accusations by opposition and government lawmakers that Zeman refused to grant a high state award to holocaust survivor Jiří Brady because his nephew, Culture Minister Daniel Herman, met with the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama.
