The Prime Minister of Slovakia has been shot and wounded in the town of Handlova. So far, very few details are known. At this time, he is said to be in a severe life-threatening condition with multiple gunshot wounds. He was flown to a hospital in Bratislava via helicopter.

Video clips show the gunman being tackled by police. His identity has not yet been announced. He is said to be a native Slovakian from the town of Levice.

Robert Fico is an economic socialist but a Slovakian nationalist and social conservative. Some EU leaders have threatened to expel Slovakia from the EU over his election.
