Hungarian Police Confront Anti-Orban Protests for Second Night

(Bloomberg) -- Hungarian police clashed with anti-government protesters for a second night on Thursday after the introduction of harsher overtime regulations for employees galvanized resistance to Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

Officers used tear gas after demonstrators, including opposition politician Andras Fekete-Gyor, threw smoke bombs in front of parliament in Budapest, several news website reported. Before the incident, thousands of people marched around the capital, blocking some bridges. They then converged outside the assembly building chanting anti-Orban slogans as on the previous evening, live footage showed.
