Czech president video is web hit


Footage of the Czech president pocketing a pen at a news conference has been causing a stir on local TV and the internet.

Vaclav Klaus was filmed taking the ceremonial pen during a news conference with Chile's President Sebastian Pinera.

Czech TV broadcast the video with red circles and arrows highlighting the pen, which was then posted online with a 'crime scene' soundtrack.

A spokesman for Klaus said the pen was "a common pen with a logo of the state or office, which presidents and members of their delegation receive during state visits".
