IN SHORT

Marx and Engels live on

INHABITANTS of the Slovak city of Levice have voted to keep the names of streets in their city as they were inherited from the communists, including Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels and Red Army streets.

The state-run TASR news agency reported that Levice inhabitants had decided in favour of the old names because they did not want the bureaucratic hassle of changing the home address on their personal identification documents.
