Police in Hungary battle protesters on anniversary of uprising
http://today.reuters.com/news/articlenews.aspx?type=new...

BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungarian police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at thousands of anti-government protesters on Monday, marring commemorations of the 50th anniversary of the country's 1956 uprising against Soviet rule.

Police also used water cannon and some protesters lobbed stones and other missiles at them. The ambulance service said that 20-25 people had been injured, although no one was seriously hurt. One policeman was stabbed in the hand.

As police pushed the crowd of mostly far-right protesters back toward a rally by the main right of center Fidesz opposition and further away from parliament, demonstrators seized a Soviet-era T-34 tank -- on show for the commemorations -- and drove it at police.

Reuters reporters said police had fired hundreds of teargas rounds and used mounted police to clear protesters from the streets and that paving stones had been thrown at the lines of police in riot gear
