Vandals dig up Communist-era leader’s grave in Hungary

Vandals dig up Communist-era leader’s grave in Hungary
In Hungary, vandals have dug up the grave of the country's Communist-era leader, Janos Kadar, in the capital Budapest. They damaged his casket and stole the urn with his wife's ashes.

Forensic experts are investigating now if Kadar's remains were taken out of the coffin.

The vandals wrote words “murderer and traitor” on a memorial to Communist leaders near the tomb.

The country's Prime Minister has condemned the attack as inhumane and cowardly.

Janos Kadar was Hungary's leader for more than 30 years and died shortly before democratic changes in the country.
