    In this photo dated Monday, May 1, 2017, taken in Brno, Czech Republic, showing 16-year-old Lucie Myslikova talks to a protester at a right wing demonstration. The Czech teenager was among some 300 protesters who confronted a rally of the far right Workers Party of Social Justice on May Day in the second largest Czech city of Brno. The Czech Interior Ministry says police are taking steps to ensure security of a Girl Scout who has become an Internet sensation after a photo showing her confronting a neo-Nazi group went viral.

    A teenage Girl Scout seen in a viral photo confronting a neo-Nazi group in the Czech Republic is receiving threats and is now getting police protection, NBC News and The Associated Press reported.

    The Czech Interior Ministry did not give other details about threats against Lucie Myslikova, 16, beyond that they appeared on Facebook.

    Myslikova was photographed at a May Day protest in Brno facing off with one of about 150 members of the far-right Workers of Social Justice party. She said Sunday that she was worried by the violent threats and appreciated the move taken by police.

    "The most important thing really is that the police took [the threats] seriously from the very first moment," said Pavla Velickinova, a spokeswoman for the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Washington, D.C.
