A Slovak newspaper has published shocking images of skinheads beating students in the town of Nitra.


It's reported police failed to act against the skinheads who are members of a club linked to a far-right politician.


An investigation was started only after the images appeared in the media.


Our central Europe correspondent Kerry Skyring spoke to Santilla Chingaipe about the attack.
