Jamal, whose remains were transported aboard a plane from Prague on Monday, will be buried in the town of Al-Bira on the west bank of the Jordan River, some 15 kilometres north of Jerusalem.

Jamal succumbed to the injuries he suffered in the explosion while manipulating the embassy's safe in his diplomatic flat in the Prague-Suchdol neighbourhood where the safe was moved shortly before on January 1.

The Czech police have ruled out that the explosion was caused by a terrorist act.

The police are investigating the incident as killing caused by negligence and illegal arms possession as they have found unregistered firearms in the embassy building.
