Masked and armed group sparks concern in Slovenia

Footage of an armed group being led through training drills by a fringe politician has sparked concern in Slovenia. Former presidential candidate Andrej Sisko, who heads up the right-wing Movement for United Slovenia political party, has been pictured with around 50 masked members.

Slovenian President Borut Pahor has expressed concern over the group pointing out that “Slovenia is a safe country in which no unauthorised person needs or is allowed to illegally care for the security of the country and its borders.” Sisko claims that his group would “secure public peace and order” if needed.
