MISDAAD

Slowaakse premier in levensbedreigende toestand na moordaanslag

By Jordi Bou

May 15, 2024 - Slovakia’s Prime Minister Robert Fico, 59, suffered life-threatening injuries after he was shot multiple times following a government meeting in the city of Handlova.

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.
