Hundreds of protesters gathered in front of the Slovak embassy in Budapest on November 1 to protest the police crackdown at the football stadium in Dunajská Streda (Trnava region) during that evening’s premier league match between home-side DAC Dunajská Streda and Slovan Bratislava, Hungarian police reported.

Protesters were seen burning the Slovak flag in front of the embassy gates. Police reported a similar demonstration of Hungarian nationalists that same evening in front of the Slovak general consulate in Békešská Caba, the unofficial capital of the ethnic-Slovak region in Hungary.

The protests in Hungary came in response to the events in Dunajská Streda, which has the highest concentration of Hungarians of any Slovak city. Approximately 50 people had to be treated after riots and the police crackdown at the match. TASR
