Slovak Prime Minister in stable condition after surgery

Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico is in stable condition after surgery, Slovak Deputy Prime Minister and Environment Minister Tomas Taraba said.

News agency reuters in a report said this on Thursday (May 16).

The gunman shot Fico, 59, five times, initially leaving the prime minister in critical condition and undergoing surgery hours later on Wednesday evening.

"I was very shocked ... fortunately as far as I know the operation went well - and I guess in the end he will survive ... he's not in a life-threatening situation at this moment," Slovak Deputy Prime Minister and Environment Minister Tomas Taraba said.

Taraba said one bullet went through Fico's stomach and a second hit a joint.

News outlet Aktuality.sk cited an unnamed source saying Fico was out of surgery and in stable condition.
