Police release seven suspects in Slovakian journalist's killing

The seven men were taken into custody Thursday when police raided houses allegedly linked to members of an Italian crime syndicate. One of the men named in Kuciak's report, which probed potential abuse of European Union subsidies and other fraud, had past links to people who subsequently worked for Prime Minister Robert Fico's office.

Kuciak's funeral is scheduled for later on Saturday.

Journalist Jan Kuciak and his partner, Martina Kusnirova, were found shot in their house Sunday. "After the 48 hours passed, the persons were released from detention", police spokeswoman Denisa Baloghova said in a statement, as quoted by Reuters.

His last, unfinished article was published posthumously by Slovak and global media.

The archbishop added: "Evil won't win, even if it might seem so now".

Marches were held in 25 towns and cities across the country and overseas, including in London, Paris and Brussels.

Alongside the photos of the 27-year-old journalist, protesters displayed banners saying "I am angry", "Mafia get out of my country", and "An attack on journalists = an attack on us all".

The Slovak President, Andrej Kiska, joined the event where a minute's silence was held.

A retired Italian anti-Mafia prosecutor said Italian prosecutors had warned authorities in Slovakia of "dangerous" infiltration by a powerful organised crime syndicate before the killings.

Franco Roberti told Italian radio: "We warned authorities in Bratislava, but unfortunately they didn't heed us".
