One dead and two seriously injured after suspected neo-Nazi attacks

ONE death and at least two seriously injured persons is the result of two organized - allegedly neo-Nazi - attacks during the past week in Bratislava, the People against Racism organization reported on November 6, the TASR news agency reported.

The attacks occurred only a few days before the International Day of the Fight against Fascism and Anti-Semitism on November 9.

During the night from Monday, October 31 to Tuesday, November 1, two young men were attacked by a group of neo-Nazis in the centre of Bratislava. Four armed men attacked a boy and stabbed him six times.

During another attack on Friday evening, a 19-year-old student was killed. A group of unknown attackers - likely also to be neo-Nazis - attacked him and his six friends on a car park on the banks of the Danube River in Petržalka. Police are investigating the case as murder and are still searching for the culprits.

"This attack proves that neo-Nazism and its followers are still here and are ready to threaten peoples' lives just because of their convictions, appearance or skin colour," Daniel Milo, head of People against Racism, told the news agency.
