Illegal immigrants cause security scare

Four Iranian illegal immigrants caused a security alert when they were caught near Gabčikovo dam close to the Hungarian border. The dam is under tighter security as it is seen as a potential terrorist target.

Combined units of police, army, and private security firms currently protect the dam. High levels of protection are also in place at Slovakia's two nuclear power stations at Mochovce and Bohunice.
