Dzurinda: No Slovaks in US crashes

Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda said yesterday he knew of no Slovak citizens who had been either killed, wounded or were missing in Tuesday’s attacks in the United States. Dzurinda also confirmed that Slovakia would open its airspace to Nato if needed, and said the military alliance should expand “the sooner the better” to include Slovakia.
