Holocaust survivor and historian Randolph L. Braham said Sunday he is returning a high state award to Hungary to protest what he says are government efforts to rewrite history and exonerate the country from its role in the Holocaust.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton expressed concern Thursday that Hungary is backsliding on democracy by enacting laws that curb freedom of the press and extend executive power.
People spied on by Hungary's communist-era secret police will have the right to destroy their surveillance reports under a government proposal historians say would damage the country's ability to acknowledge its past.
Hungarian police have detained the director of the aluminum company responsible for a flood of caustic red sludge that killed eight people when it burst from its reservoir last week, the prime minister said Monday.
The cracking wall of an industrial plant reservoir appeared on the verge of collapse late Saturday, and engineers were working to blunt a possible second wave of the caustic red sludge that has already deluged several towns in western Hungary and killed seven.
Orban, who is seeking his third term, said he hoped for a heavy turnout to give legitimacy and a clear mandate for the future.
Orban acknowledged that Fidesz was the favorite but urged an admiring crowd on Szechenyi Square to cast their votes only for his center-right alliance.
