One Killed, One Wounded in Attack on PiS Office

An attacker Tuesday shot and killed one man and stabbed another after storming into the opposition Law and Justice (PiS) party’s regional headquarters in Lodz, central Poland, media reported.

Eyewitnesses said the attacker was screaming “Kill Kaczynski!” referring to PiS leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski, as he entered the office.

The attacker shot Marek Rosiak, 62, an assistant of MEP Janusz Wojciechowski and seriously wounded a 39-year-old Paweł Kowalski, assistant to deputy Jaroslaw Jagiello in a knife attack, Polish public radio reported, citing police.

The attacker, a 62-year-old man from the southern city of Czestochowa, was quickly arrested by police. He faces murder charges.

Kaczynski told reporters that the attack was “the result of the great campaign of hatred against the party.”

“Today the government is fully responsible for the security of all our offices and all our workers. If anybody says one more word of hatred towards us, this would amount to a call for killing," Kaczynski added.

Kaczynski’s comments are an “exploitation” of the situation for political ends and that’s “very dangerous, because it antagonizes” people, Slawomir Neumann, a ruling PO Civic Platform party member said in an interview with TVN24.

Na pasażu Schillera zgromadzili się zwolennicy i działacze PiS-u, m. in. Witold Waszczykowski - kandydat PiS na prezydenta Łodzi.
