The number of illegal immigrants detained at the Slovak border has dropped significantly since last year, Interior Ministry statistics show.

While in the first half of 2007, 1,637 immigrants were detained, this figure dropped to 1,114 in the first six months of this year. According to ministry figures, 3,405 people attempted to enter illegally last year, down 724 from 2006.
