A reported 65,000 people joined an anti-government protest in the Slovakian capital of Bratislava on Friday, March 16, amid outrage over the recent killings of a Slovakian journalist and his fiancee. The demonstration was held in SNP Square after the killings of Jan Kuciak and Martina Kusnirova at their home in Veľka Maca on February 26. The killings prompted the resignation of Slovakia’s Prime Minister Robert Fico on Thursday, March 15. Kuciak, 27, had been investigating links between some of Slovakia’s top politicians and the Italian mafia when he was shot dead, the Guardian reported. This video was captured by an eyewitness in SNP Square. It shows protesters singing the Slovakian national anthem while holding up the torches on their mobile phones. Similar protests have been held for three consecutive weeks. Credit: Petko Filko via Storyful
