Over 2,000 signatures in condolence book

By the end of Friday, over 2,000 people had signed a book of condolences for the September 11 terrorist attacks in the United States. The book had been made available at the Foreign Ministry since the day before. It was signed by Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda, Foreign Minister Eduard Kukan, President Rudolf Schuster, politicians from all parties and ordinary citizens, many of whom had to wait over an hour in line. Ministry officials could not say whether the book would remain in Slovakia, or be sent to the US.
