No Slovaks reported hurt in India explosions

THE SLOVAK Foreign Affairs Ministry has not yet received any information regarding any Slovak victims of the explosions in a market place in New Delhi, India, the TASR news agency reported.

Tomaga confirmed that Slovak diplomats in India's capital are all right, and added that there just a small community of Slovaks living in the city. In three explosions at a local market place in New Delhi on October 29, 51 people died and others were seriously injured.
