Townhall Media

Slovakia's Prime Minister Robert Fico was shot in the abdomen on Wednesday after a government meeting in Handlova, about two hours from the capital city of Bratislava, state news agency TASR reported, according to Reuters.


Several shots were fired, those at the scene told news outlets, with video on social media showing Fico being carried into his car by his security guards. He was then airlifted to a nearby hospital by helicopter, reports said. 

A suspect has been detained by police. 

Slovak President Zuzana Čaputová said on social media that she was “utterly shocked” by the "brutal attack" on the prime minister.


"I wish him lot of strength in this critical moment and early recovery. My thoughts are also with his family and close ones," she added.


A Facebook post from Fico's official account said the prime minister was shot multiple times and sustained "life threatening" injuries in an assassination attempt. "The next few hours will decide," the post concluded.
