Sympathizers of Hungarian Guards protest at border crossings

The road between Rajka, Hungary and Rusovce, Slovakia was partially blocked on the Hungarian side of the border by 13 cars of the Hungarian ultra-right party Jobbik and its paramilitary organisation, the Hungarian Guard, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on November 10.

The road between Rajka, Hungary and Rusovce, Slovakia was partially blocked on the Hungarian side of the border by 13 cars of the Hungarian ultra-right party Jobbik and its paramilitary organisation, the Hungarian Guard, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on November 10.

Sympathizers of the Hungarian Guard also blocked one lane of road in the Hungarian village of Letkes from 9:00 a.m., 150 miles from the border crossing to the Slovak village of Salka, too.

"The reason for this is the football match in Dunajská Streda [on November 1], the case of Hedviga Malinová and the incident in Kráľovsky Chlmec on November 8," said Robert Kiss, captain of the Hungarian Guard.

He added, “Let's admit that the Fico government is not interested in seeing these relations improve. We want to attain our goal of no discrimination on the former Hungarian territories, and that the current Slovak government treat the Hungarian minority more humanely." SITA
