Slovakia's interior minister quits over journalist's murder

Tomas Drucker's resignation comes amid mass public protests demanding the sacking of the country's police chief following the murder of an investigative journalist that has shaken the nation.

    Tens of thousands of Slovaks rallied through the capital, Bratislava, on Sunday, demanding the head of the police force step down.

    But instead of the police chief quitting, it was Slovakia's interior minister who resigned after less than a month in the job.

    Tomas Drucker is the latest politician to step down following protests against the murder of an investigative journalist Jan Kuciak and his fiancee.
