The Right-Wing Mobilises

The far-right People's Party - Our Slovakia (LSNS) said it would continue to patrol trains, adding that it is looking at expanding its operations in others parts of the country. They target the Roma community, Europe's poorest and largest minority. Slovakia has a population of 5.4 million, with Roma accounting for some 300,000 of that figure.

"People in eastern Slovakia are being terrorized by asocial parasites," said lawmaker Milan Mazurek, who is in charge of the patrols. LSNS entered parliament for the first time this year, riding on a wave of anti-migration sentiment in the Eastern European nation.
