May 15, 2024 - Slowakischer Premierminister Robert Fico, 59, erlitt lebensbedrohliche Verletzungen nachdem er nach einer Regierungssitzung in Handlova mehrfach von Schüssen getroffen wurde.

Fico, 59, was rushed to hospital in the central city of Handlova after holding a government meeting there, and was being transported by helicopter to the city of Banska Bystrica for urgent treatment.

A Reuters witness heard several shots fired after the meeting in Handlova northeast of the capital Bratislava. Police detained a man and security officials pushed someone into a car and drove off, the witness said.
