Lexa hospitalised

Ivan Lexa, the former head of the Slovak secret service who faces 10 charges from his 1995-1998 tenure in the post, has been hospitalised in Bratislava with heart problems.

The ex-spy boss apparently took ill hours after the immunity he enjoyed from prosecution as a member of parliament expired on the weekend.
