Thousands attend anti-Nazi rally in Hungary
Thousands, including Israeli and US ambassadors, gather in Budapest to protest remark by Hungarian far right politician saying 'Jews pose national security risk'
Thousands of people have attended an anti-Nazi rally organized by Hungarian Jewish and civic groups to protest a far right lawmaker's call for the screening of Jews for national security risks.

 

Sunday's rally was uncommon because politicians from government and opposition parties shared a stage set up outside parliament.
