    At least 100,000 people took to the streets of Budapest on Saturday in support of Viktor Orban, Hungary's two-time prime minister, who is currently caught up in a dispute with the European Union over new laws which the EU says threaten democracy.

    Attila Mesterhazy, the president of the Hungarian Socialist Party, says Orban is trying to portray himself as the protector of Hungarian sovereignty and the attacks on him as attacks on the people.
