Last Week in Slovakia: People marched for LGBTI rights in Bratislava

Listen to all the headlines from The Slovak Spectator's news podcast.

Last Saturday, estimated 4,000 people gathered in the Slovak capital to march in support of the LGBTI rights.

Meanwhile in eastern Slovakia, the measles epidemic is not going away. Epidemiologists warn that if people fail to observe the measures that have been applied, measles might continue spreading further west.

Last week, the government approved the much-disputed purchase of new fighter jets for the Slovak armed forces. The American F-16 planes were chosen based on an analysis by the Defence Ministry.
