Attack in Bratislava

In a premeditated attack, unprecedented in Slovakia, a gunman killed two LGBT+ people on the evening of October 12, 2022 outside Tepláreň, one of the very few LGBT+ spots in the city. The attack appears to have been a hate crime aimed at the LGBT+ community. The police are investigating it as a terrorist attack.
