Baby's remains buried in Slovakia

THE BODY of the Slovak-Canadian boy killed during a hostage drama in Cambodia on June 16 were brought to Slovakia on June 19, the TASR news wire reported.

According to Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesperson Juraj Tomaga, the family requested as little media coverage as possible.

The boy's parents are Slovak citizens who have lived in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, for many years. They wanted their son to be buried in Slovakia.

The tragedy took place in Siem Reap, Cambodia, where four attackers took international school students hostage and held them for ransom.

The boy was shot dead when one of the gunmen became unnerved with his crying when police surrounded the school. All four hostage-takers were captured.
