Quote: "He is currently being taken by helicopter to Banská Bystrica, since the journey to Bratislava would take too long given the urgency of the situation. The next few hours will decide everything."

Fico's Facebook page does not clarify the extent of his wounds, but the Slovak portal Aktuality has reported that the Slovak prime minister was injured in the abdomen. This has been confirmed by The Guardian and a representative of Fico’s Smer (Social Democracy) party.
