Slovakia PM Fico's anti-migrant stance at election

Slovakia's Prime Minister Robert Fico is hoping his anti-migrant position will get him re-elected in 5 March elections.

He has taken a firm position against European Union quotas for relocating migrants who arrive in Italy and Greece, saying they do not want to stay in Slovakia.

His rhetoric has also included warnings that the creation of compact Muslim communities poses the risk of Paris-style attacks.

But the rhetoric is at odds with data on how many migrants Slovakia is actually being asked to take, as BBC News investigates.
