Secrecy over Koran

The director of publishing house Knižné Centrum Žilina, Michal Horecký, has refused to name the first Slovak translator of the Koran, despite releasing news that an official bookwarming for the Muslim holy work will be held in the capital Bratislava.

Horecký would only say that the Koran would be printed in a limited edition.

Interest worldwide in the book has soared since the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington.
