Slovakia police chief to resign after journalist's murder

There have been public protests for weeks since Kutsiak and his fiancee were killed.

    Slovakia's national police chief says he is going to step down following weeks of public pressure and protests over the murder of a journalist.

    This is the third major resignation of top officials and politicians in Slovakia after investigative reporter Yan Kutsiak and his fiancee were shot dead in February.
