PRAGUE (Reuters) – Slovakia will convene a state security council meeting and the government will also meet from 11:00 a.m. (0900 GMT) on Thursday, the government office said.

Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico was shot in an assassination attempt when leaving a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, but a government minister said his life was no longer in danger.
