Slovakia’s Prime Minister Robert Fico shot and gravely injured

Slovakia’s prime minister, Robert Fico, was in “life-threatening” condition after being shot on Wednesday, according to his government.

A statement posted to Fico’s Facebook page said he was being transported to a hospital by helicopter and that the “next few hours” would be decisive.

The incident took place in the town of central town of Handlova, where the prime minister had attended a government meeting at the Palace of Culture. News video showed him striding with his entourage toward members of the public who were standing outside. He was shaking hands with people, reaching across a chest-high metal barrier, when a man in a white button-down shirt appears to start shooting at close range. The attacker can be heard firing five shots before being tackled by security officers.
