U.S. congressional leaders have honored the late Czech president, author and freedom fighter Vaclav Havel at a time when his country is marking the 25th anniversary of its anti-communist protests that eventually led to democracy. A bust of Havel was unveiled in the U.S. Capitol Wednesday. Havel's widow Dagmar and Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka attended the ceremony, hosted by Speaker of the House John Boehner.
