Eduard Heger, the Slovakian Prime Minister, responded: “It is unacceptable that anyone should fear for their life because of the way they live.
“I strongly condemn yesterday’s attack in which two people died. No form of extremism is allowed.”
Meanwhile, the nation’s President, Zuzana Caputova, expressed her support for the families and friends of the victims of a “horrific” attack.
She warned: “Words can become weapons. Hate kills. As politicians, we must weigh every word we say before it’s too late.”
