Three young Slovaks attacked three students from Angola in the area around the student hostels in Bratislava's Mlynská Dolina on July 13.

Police are investigating 17-year old Michaela from Bratislava, 19-year old Andrej from Humenné and 22-year old Zdenko from Pezinok, who alledgedly attacked the Angolan students while shouting racist slogans and a nazi greeting, the news wire TASR reported.

The tabloid daily Nový Čas claimed that the police kept the public uninformed about the incident for several days. According to the daily, among the victims were two children of former Angolan diplomats.
