    The walls of a red sludge reservoir in Hungary were "very likely" to collapse, the prime minister said on Saturday as the government rushed to prevent another deluge like the one earlier this week that killed at least 7 people. The town of Kolontar next to the reservoir and was badly damaged in Monday's flood, was evacuated as a precaution because engineers have determined that the developing cracks could cause a whole side of the enormous container to collapse. An estimated 500,000 cubic metres more of red sludge could escape from the reservoir if the wall collapsed.
