Skinheads in racist attack

Bratislava - Rampaging skinheads set fire to a Gypsy youth, attacked a second, and tried to torch a bar and a private flat in the central Slovak town of Ziar nad Hronom. In the incidents last Friday, a group of some 30 skinheads attacked a 17-year-old Gypsy youth, dousing him with a flammable liquid and then setting him ablaze.

The gang then attacked another Gypsy, leaving him with concussion before trying to set fire to a bar frequented by Gypsies. They also threw a petrol bomb into the flat of a 28-year-old Gypsy who managed to throw it back into the street where it exploded. Reuter
