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.

The Israeli and US ambassadors also attended the rally.
