Schuster calls for evacuation practice

President Rudolf Schuster has called on all Slovak schools to practice emergency evacuation procedures by the end of March because of the Iraqi crisis.

However, Interior Minister Vladimír Palko said there was no fear of danger for the moment, stating: "Slovaks live and will continue to live normal lives".

He said that neither he nor the Slovak Information Service had any information that there would be attacks in Slovakia.
