Police make arrests over killing of Slovakian anti-corruption journalist


Earlier in the year a Slovakian journalist and his girlfriend were shot dead at their home. He had been investigating possible links between government officials and the Italian Mafia for news website Aktuality, and the authorities suspect they were murdered in a contract killing. Massive public protests over their deaths led to the collapse of the Slovak government shortly after. Today, as Paraic O’Brien reports, police raids have led to several arrests.
