US embassy area closed, Slovakia supports strikes

An area of downtown Bratislava in front of the US embassy was cordoned off yesterday as air strikes began against targets in Afghanistan and US sites around the world were put on alert. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda, after meeting President Rudolf Schuster and other top state officials last night, declared support for the US and said Slovakia would supply any help that America of Nato requested. Slovakia has already agreed to open its airspace and air bases to US and Nato flights.
