US missile experts check possible Czech radar site

A group of US experts arrived in the Czech capital Monday to check conditions at a possible radar site that would be part of a US missile defense system near Prague, a defense official said Monday. The five-member group from the US Missile Defense Agency will start their measurements of electromagnetic conditions in the Brdy military area Tuesday, Defense Ministry spokesman Petr Sykora said. Last week, the government agreed to start negotiations with the United States on the possible hosting of the radar.
