SUSPECTS OF RECENT BOMBINGS ARRESTED IN HUNGARY. One German,
one Israeli, and two Russian citizens suspected of
involvement in a series of recent bomb attacks in Hungary
have been arrested, National Police commander Laszlo Forgacs
announced on 8 June. The four persons were detained after
police raided three houses in Budapest and discovered a
laboratory for producing explosives. Police also seized 10
kilograms of explosive materials and weapons as well as 1
ton of paper suitable for forging bank notes. Since 1991,
there have been 111 bombings in Hungary, most of which are
thought to have been perpetrated by rival domestic and
foreign gangs. MSZ
