HUNGARY EXPELS NEO-NAZIS AFTER CLASH WITH POLICE.
Hungarian authorities on 15 February expelled 26 mostly
German neo-Nazis who had been involved in a public
disturbance two days earlier. The 26 had been among some
500 neo-Nazis and skinheads who took part in a
demonstration at Buda Castle marking the fall of
Budapest to the Russian Army at the end of World War II.
After the demonstration, a fight broke out between
police and demonstrators in a Budapest bar. In other
news, hundreds of Holocaust survivors are returning the
30,000 forints ($140) compensation they received from
the government for relatives killed in concentration
camps during World War II, saying that the sum is
"humiliating and insulting." MSZ
