Battle against flooding unites Hungary

For the past week Hungary has been struggling against the flood waters on the Danube. The crest reached 8.91 metres in the Hungarian capital Budapest on Sunday night. The conservative daily Magyar Nemzet points out that Hungarians are more united than ever before in battling the flood waters: "Half the country is fighting the floods. Soldiers, police officers, disaster control units, the fire brigade and volunteers. Old and young, physically handicapped and even convicts. They're all there to help. Some with trucks, others with machines, but most with nothing more than their bare hands, in rubber boots or not, day and night. You see tired, sleepless people on the embankments, but with determination in their eyes. Because there's no time to sleep now that every minute can count."

Slovak-Hungarian tensions

Under the headline "A sick man", the Hungarian daily Magyar Nemzet focuses on Ján Slota, the Slovakian politician now part of the country's ruling coalition, and his anti-Hungarian statements: "At a recent news conference Ján Slota, the president of the Slovak National Party (SNS), let it be known to Hungerian President László Sólyom that if Slovakia is not building bridges over the Ipoly River which marks the border between the two countries, it is to prevent Hungarian tanks from crossing over. Slota plans to introduce a motion in parliament for the founding of a 'local militia' as well as a law for the protection of the Slovak Republic. ... In addition, Slota accused László Sólyom of acting during a visit to Slovakia as if the country were a Hungarian colony. ... Such political midgets are found everywhere. But the difference is that elsewhere they are ridiculed and silenced."
