THREE foreigners were victims of a racially-motivated attack in central Slovakia. Two Georgians and a Czech Roma man were beaten up in Banská Štiavnica on the night of April 6 in front of Pražovňa, a local disco.

The Czech man fell unconscious twice, the Sme daily reported. His girlfriend, a Banská Štiavnica local, whose nose was broken in the attack, filed a criminal complaint.

The Georgians, who came to the town to help with the reconstruction of the historical Calvary as part of an international EU programme, are considering informing their embassy, as is the Czech. One of the Georgians sustained a serious head injury. The incident occurred when 15 to 20 men with shaven heads attacked the foreigners, continuing to kick them even after they had fallen to the ground. None of the disco staff or patrons intervened, Sme wrote.
