The partial blockade of five border crossings between Slovakia and Hungary on November 10 that was co-ordinated by the ultra-Movement for a Better Hungary (Jobbik) and the Hungarian Guards ended without incidents.

The blockade at several border crossings from Hungary to Slovakia was organised to demonstrate disapproval of the Slovak police’s intervention at a November 1 football match in Dunajská Streda (Trnava region). At each of the five crossings, several Jobbik members, as well as several men in Hungarian Guard uniforms, blocked one lane with cars. Nonetheless. no major traffic complications occurred. TASR
