A-six-year-old boy was beheaded with a piece of broken glass in front of his screaming mum, a campaign group has claimed.
Shia Rights Watch says that “in an unprecedented incident” the child, Zakaria al-Jaber, was brutally killed in Saudi Arabia after he was confirmed to be a Shia Muslim.
TMV, which has posted footage of the murdered boy’s funeral on its website, claims he was killed in broad daylight in the city of Medina last Thursday, The Sun reported.
British woman arrested for calling a transgender woman a man
By Rick Moran
A British woman was arrested in front of her children and held in police custody for 7 hours after calling a transgender woman a man online.
Kate Scottow was detained following an argument on Twitter with a transgendered woman. She was charged with “harassment and malicious communications.”
Writing on online forum Mumsnet, Mrs Scottow – who has also been served with a court order that bans her from referring to her accuser as a man – claimed: ‘I was arrested in my home by three officers, with my autistic ten-year-old daughter and breastfed 20-month-old son present.
One can not change your sex,there is no “transgender”because sex can not be changed.these queers can pretend if they wish, that is entirely up to them,but neither them or the state has the right to legislate that I must pretend that their perversion is real.to discount the many and radical differences between the two sexes is total purile nonsense,the evidence is obvious to all they are simply men in womens clothing,our minds work in different ways,and a man pretending to be femail is a poor and laughable imitation not worthy of adult attention.
what they call ‘sex change’ i call a subcutaneous costume’.
Transgender people are like light bulbs. Old joke:
Q: How many psychiatrists does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Just one … but the light bulb really has to want to change.
Transgenders have the same chances of changing their biological sex as light bulbs do of changing themselves.
Be that as it may, there might be a faint shared resemblance in how both are burned out and in need of replacement.
How many transgenders does it take to change a light bulb?
Just one but its still just another identical light bulb.
Riyadh to host first Gulf women’s football tournament in March (saudigazette, Feb 10, 2019)
“For the first time in the Kingdom, the Saudi Federation for Community Sports is organizing the first Gulf women’s football tournament from March 1 to 6.
A total of 16 teams will participate in the knockout tournament, titled “The Football Unites Us,” at the Green Hall of Al-Khobar Sports City.
Several women’s football clubs from within the Kingdom as well as from the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Bahrain and Oman will participate in the tournament, which will be held under the patronage of Prince Saud Bin Naif, Emir of the Eastern Province.
The Saudi clubs participating in the tournament include Al-Shuala Al-Sharqiyah, Al-Yamamah, Lourdes, United Eagles, Royals, Jeddah Eagles, and Kings’ Union.
Speaking to Okaz/Saudi Gazette, Sanaa Al-Ateeq, general manager of one of the companies specialized in organizing exhibitions and conventions, said that the tournament will kick off with an official inaugural event, of which the major highlight will be a musical performance by 50 young Saudi women, titled “I come here” and this will be staged under the supervision of designer Hanouf Al-Duwaihi.
The inaugural event will be followed by two football matches. There will be four matches daily in the succeeding days.
Apart from football, sport events such as tennis, basketball and table tennis will be held at the venue in addition to musical programs.
Outdoor spaces will be made available for children’s games, healthy sports and healthy meals with the availability of food courts, and these will be meant not only for women, but also for their families, Al-Ateeq added.
Lima Al-Enezy, a player of Al-Yamamah Club, said that her team is ready to participate in the tournament and will compete for the title of champions of the first women’s football tournament at the Gulf level.”

Congress trying to curtail allies like Saudi Arabia: Jubeir (saudigazette, Feb 10, 2019)
“Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel Al-Jubeir said some US legislators were “providing ammunition to the ‘death to America’ crowd.”
“I find it very strange that members of Congress would try to curtail allies like Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in trying to push back against terrorist organizations supported by Iran and Hezbollah,” Jubeir told “Face the Nation”, responding to Congressional efforts this week against the Kingdom.
He echoed the UN blame for the Houthis, vowing that Saudi Arabia would “absolutely” allow passage of food through ports in Yemen.
“We’re the ones that are providing the largest amount of humanitarian assistance to Yemen of any country in the world,” Jubeir said.
“We’ve provided $13 billion, plus, in assistance to Yemen over the last four years. And we will continue to provide assistance to the Yemeni people.”
Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Sunday that Jubeir visited Capital Hill and met with Members of US Congress, posting a video clip from the visit.
On Thursday, the United Nations condemned the Houthis for blocking access to unused humanitarian aid with the potential to feed millions of starving Yemenis.
“Enough grain to feed 3.7 million people for a month has sat unused and possibly spoiling in silos at the mills for more than four months,” UN humanitarian chief Mark Lowcock warned in a statement, calling on the Houthis to allow access to the silos. — Agencies”
You guys don’t yet have the savvy, the experience of the MB-junta that’s embedded in the Western MSM. Even top-dollar PR firms can’t bridge the gap. Even PTrump’s hand-picked team.
You’re working on it, I see – stories about charity, music, women as 3/4 instead of 1/2 of a human. But you’re still clumsy. Look at how MbS was misrepresented, over-sold. Anybody could’ve told you that would crash and burn.
The Twisted-Ragheads inherited the Shah’s infrastructure, plus got help from Jimmy Carter. They’re 40 years ahead of you.
The Turk is even better than the original al-Jaz. His people absorbed tradecraft from the Soviet masters. In the UK alone he’s got a dozen different outlets! (Qatar’s generous.)
Now your media is facing off against the MB/Turk/Iran. Putin helps occasionally, though he’s a divide-&-conquer mixed blessing.
Russia ‘repatriates’ 27 Islamic State group children from Iraq (mee, Feb 10, 2019)
“The children landed at Ramenskoye airport, near Moscow, on Sunday evening, said a spokesman for the Ministry of Emergency Situations, cited by TASS agency.
“Twenty-seven Russian children have been repatriated from Baghdad,” a Russian foreign ministry official said earlier, AFP reported.
Thirty other children were sent back to Moscow in late December.
The fathers of the children were killed during three years of fighting between the militants and Iraqi troops, the official said…”
Emirati woman flees to Europe and makes desperate video appeal for refuge (alaraby, Feb 10, 2019)
“An Emirati woman has made a desperate plea for help on social media, after fleeing her home in the UAE, where she claims she was subjected to threats from her family after filing for a divorce.
Hind Albolooki made a video appeal this week from a “holding centre” in Macedonia, where she appeared visibly distressed and said she feared deportation back to the UAE.
“I came to Macedonia, running away from Dubai, as I feel threatened from my father, his big brother, my big brother that they will make my life hell… only because I asked for divorce,” she said.
She said that she left her four children in Dubai, after male family members demanded that she hand over her ID and passport.
“They want to hide my identity I know there’s something going on and I wasn’t that stupid. So I thought of it and I ran away. I am a mother of four children. No mother would leave their children like this but I had to leave [them].”
In another video – which appear to have been made consecutively – she said that police had been investigating her and was concerned about being deported to the UAE where her life might be in danger.
“Please help me, whoever can hear me,” she ends the video message.
Albolooki also opened a Twitter account to highlight her case.
“I’m seeking asylum in country where I can be safe. I was seeking asylum in Macedonia but because of the power of position in the country I’ve been abused and deny pls anyway to help me, my life is in danger. Please for help any country I can be safe and alive,” she tweeted.
The New Arab could not verify Albolooki’s account, which was opened in February when she said she fled the Gulf state, and have approached her for comment.
Albalooki has also shared a copy of her Emirati passport on Twitter, which activists said appears genuine.
UAE officials and media have also commented on her situation saying they would offer legal services if she returned home.
The UAE’s embassy in Italy – responsible for consular affairs in Macedonia – confirmed in a statement that it is aware of Albolooki’s situation and working with police to collect evidence against family members.
“Domestic abuse is a serious crime, and has no place whatsoever in the UAE. Emirati women are protected and fully empowered under UAE laws. Crimes involving harm against women are severely prosecuted under UAE law, and these allegations should and will be fully investigated,” the embassy said in a statement.
Afra al-Basti, director-general of the Dubai Foundation for Women and Children, tweeted on Friday about Albolooki’s plight.
“I was recently made aware of the case of @HAlbolooki. I am writing this to publicly demonstrate my support to this case. Everyone is entitled to have freedom especially women. Dubai and the leadership have set clear policies and laws to protect women in these circumstances,” she tweeted.
She said that she had selected lawyers to assist the mother-of-four if she wishes to pursue a legal battle against her family.
However, activists on Twitter urged Albalooki to not return to the UAE, where they fear she could be harmed and urged countries to offer her refuge.
They said they believe the UAE was concerned with minimising the bad press Albolooki’s situation might highlight regarding abuse and honour killings in the Gulf state.
It comes after a high-profile case of Saudi “runaway”, 18-year-old Rahaf al-Qunun, who fled the kingdom to Thailand after reporting threats from her family.
Qunun used social media to highlight her case, after she was detained in a hotel and due to be deported back to Saudi Arabia. Canada eventually gave the 18-year-old asylum.”

‘Others should join Turkey and defend China’s Uighurs’ (hurriyetdailynews, Feb 10, 2019)
“Other countries should follow Turkey’s lead in calling out China’s mistreatment of Uighur Muslims, said the head of a major human rights group on Feb. 10.
“This is a big deal: [Turkey is] The first Muslim-majority country to criticize China so directly for its horrendous treatment of Uighur Muslims, and one of the most powerful Muslim-majority countries at that,” Kenneth Roth, the head of Human Rights Watch, said on Twitter.
“Now [is the] time for other governments to join Turkey,” he added.
Roth cited a Turkish Foreign Ministry statement on Feb. 9 urging Chinese authorities to respect the fundamental human rights of Uighur Turks and to close the internment camps.
“It is no longer a secret that more than one million Uighur Turks incurring arbitrary arrests are subjected to torture and political brainwashing in internment camps and prisons,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy.
“Uighurs who are not detained in these camps are under heavy pressure.”
Roth praised Turkey’s denunciation of China’s mass detention of Uighur Muslims to force them to renounce Islam and stressed Turkey calling the tragedy in the Xinjiang region “a great embarrassment for humanity.”
“Turkey notes they [Uighurs] ‘are subjected to torture and political brainwashing in concentration centers and prisons’,” Roth added.
Roth went on to say that the “next step should be the UN Human Rights Council launching an investigation of China’s outrages against Uighur and other Muslims in the Xinjiang region.”
In the statement on Feb. 9, Turkey called on the international community and the UN secretary-general “to take effective measures in order to bring to an end this human tragedy in Xinjiang.”
China’s Xinjiang region is home to around 10 million Uighurs. The Turkic Muslim group, which makes up around 45 percent of Xinjiang’s population, has long accused China’s authorities of cultural, religious and economic discrimination.
China stepped up its restrictions on the region in the past two years, banning men from growing beards and women from wearing veils and introducing what many experts see as the world’s most extensive electronic surveillance program, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Up to 1 million people, or about 7 percent of the Muslim population in Xinjiang, have been incarcerated in an expanding network of “political re-education” camps, according to U.S. officials and UN experts.”
Bezos links ‘blackmailing’ to Khashoggi murder (hurriyetdailynews, Feb 10, 2019)
“Jeff Bezos, the billionaire owner of Amazon and the Washington Post, has accused American Media Inc. (AMI) of attempting to blackmail him, drawing a connection between the publisher of the National Enquirer and the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which could all relate to the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Laying out his allegations in an extraordinary 2,000-word blogpost, Bezos noted on Feb. 8 that David Pecker and his AMI have been “investigated for various actions they’ve taken on behalf of the Saudi government.”
He added that “for reasons still to be better understood, the Saudi angle seems to hit a particularly sensitive nerve.”
“It was not immediately clear why Bezos made the Saudi connection, but political commentators were quick to recall that Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and critic of the Saudi government, was murdered at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, focusing often critical attention on [U.S. President Donald] Trump’s cosy relationship with the kingdom,” the Guardian said.
“Pecker is also close to Trump, and AMI has admitted in the past that it engaged in a practice known as “catch-and-kill” – suppressing potentially damaging stories – to help Trump become president. Trump has also waged a running war of words against Bezos, owner of the Washington Post, which he frequently denounces as part of the “fake news media.’”
The White House remained silent on the matter but two more threads raised questions about a potential association.
Pecker and AMI have a storied relationship with Trump, though it was said to have cooled in recent months. The company recently admitted secretly aiding Trump’s election campaign by paying $150,000 to a Playboy model for the rights to her story about an alleged affair with the then candidate. AMI then suppressed the story until after the 2016 election.”
Saudi Arabia Says Has ‘Nothing to Do’ with Amazon Founder’s Scandal (aawsat, Feb 10, 2019)
“Saudi State Minister for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir denied that the Kingdom was involved in the leak of the personal messages of Amazon.com Inc Chief Executive and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos.
Saudi Arabia had “absolutely nothing to do” with the National Enquirer’s reporting on the issue, he told CBS’ “Face the Nation” in an interview that will be aired Sunday.
Bezos on Thursday accused American Media Inc (AMI), the Enquirer’s owner, of trying to blackmail him with the threat of publishing “intimate photos” he allegedly sent to his girlfriend unless he said in public that the US tabloid’s reporting on him was not politically motivated.
“This is something between the two parties, we have nothing to do with it,” Jubeir stressed.
“It sounds to me like a soap opera,” he said.
AMI said on Friday its reporting on Bezos was lawful and it would investigate his claims.”
Guess Who? Media Reveals Who Leaked Bezos’ ‘Dick Pic’ to The National Enquirer (sputniknews, Feb 11, 2019)
“The source’s identity was revealed after Elkan Abramowitz, attorney to AMI CEO David Pecker, confirmed that the information wasn’t provided to the tabloid by US President Donald Trump, Roger Stone or Saudi Arabia.
The person who provided The National Enquirer with explicit text messages and images exchanged by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his mistress Lauren Sanchez, turned out to be none other than Sanchez’s brother Michael, The Daily Beast reports, citing several sources within the tabloid’s parent company, American Media Inc.
According to the media outlet, the information about Michael first supplying Bezos’ text to The National Enquirer was also confirmed by “another source who has been in extensive communication with senior leaders at AMI”.
This revelation emerged after Elkan Abramowitz, attorney to AMI CEO David Pecker, declared that the information about the affair were provided to the tabloid by a source known both to Bezos and Sanchez, as well as to “any investigator who was going to investigate this”.
“It was not the White House. It was not Saudi Arabia. And the libel that was going out there slamming AMI was that this was all a political hatchet job sponsored by either a foreign nation or somebody politically in this country,” he said.
Abramowitz, however, declined to confirm the identity of the source, only stating that it was not US President Donald Trump, Roger Stone or Saudi Arabia.
The National Enquirer, which is published by American Media Inc., recently revealed a series of lurid text messages between Bezos and former news anchor and helicopter pilot Lauren Sanchez, a woman he was having an affair with prior to announcing his divorce from wife MacKenzie Bezos.
According to Vanity Fair, the tabloid also obtained a number of compromising photos of Bezos and Sanchez, including a “below the belt selfie?—?otherwise colloquially known as a ‘d–k pick'”.
In response, Bezos later hired an investigator and began to suggest that the publication of his texts was a politically motivated move on account of them being leaked by The National Enquirer. AMI is owned by David Pecker, a long-time friend of US President Donald Trump, and Bezos has justified his claims by citing these ties.”
Do you really think this whole Bezos peckerdillo is where it all ends? This is a mere whiff of what’s bubbling up from the hell’s cauldron of Hollyweirdness.

Turkey prepping push against FETO: Interior minister (aa, Feb 10, 2019)
“Turkey is getting ready for a large push against the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), the group behind the 2016 deadly coup attempt, the nation’s interior minister said Sunday.
“We are preparing for another large-scale operation on FETO. We will eradicate them from this country,” Suleyman Soylu told a meeting with neighborhood officials and NGO representatives in the capital Ankara.
On July 15, 2016, FETO and its U.S.-based leader, Fetullah Gulen, orchestrated a defeated coup which left 251 people martyred and around 2,200 others wounded.
Ankara also accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police and judiciary.”

Malmö explosion ‘probably meant as threat’: police (thelocal, Feb 10, 2019)
“A powerful explosion in the Malmö district of Rosengård on Sunday morning was probably intended as a threat, according to a police press spokesperson.
Police received their first alerts about the explosion in the stairwell of an apartment building at around 2am on Sunday morning.
“If it was aimed at someone who lives in that stairwell, it might have been meant to send a message or a signal,” Fredrik Bratt told the TT newswire. “If your intention is to really hurt someone, you don’t do it with this kind of action.”
The blast damaged several doors, but left no one injured and no residents have had to be evacuated.
“If anyone had been coming out into the stairwell during the detonation, then there would have been a risk of injury,” Bratt said.
Police have interviewed all residents in the building, but have yet to arrest a suspect in the case.
Bratt said the officers investigating the case would now examine the lives of the building’s residents to try to understand if anyone had reason to threaten them.
“There are many points of interest. The investigation should show what happened,” he said.”
Syrian girls attacked in Berlin, racism suspected (DW, Feb 10, 2019)
“German police are investigating after three young girls were targeted in apparent xenophobic attacks in Berlin. In one case, a woman allegedly tried to pull off a 12-year-old’s headscarf and stab her with a syringe.
A man spouting racist insults allegedly confronted two Syrian teenagers in northeastern Berlin and punched them in the face, authorities said Saturday.
He hit the girls, aged 15 and 16, “with his fist several times … before fleeing into a shopping arcade,” police alleged in a statement. Both girls were taken to hospital for treatment.
Hours later, a woman reportedly attacked a 12-year-old girl in the southeastern district of Neukölln. Officers alleged the suspect tried to tear off the girl’s headscarf, pulled her hair and threatened her with pepper spray. The woman also allegedly attempted to stab the child with a syringe filled with what appeared to be blood, police said.
Officers from the state security police are investigating the incidents, which took place late Friday.
The suspected hate crimes highlight tensions over migration in Germany. Last month, a 50-year-old German man was charged with attempted murder after he deliberately drove his car into foreigners in the western cities of Bottrop and Essen. Eight people were injured in the New Year’s Day attack, including a 4-year-old Afghan boy and a 10-year-old Syrian girl.”
Deportation plan threatens to strain Germany’s overcrowded prisons (DW, Feb 10, 2019)
“Germany’s prisons already struggle with overcrowding and violence. Under a new proposal, they are also set to house asylum-seekers obliged to leave the country. Is the penitentiary system becoming a political plaything?
Germany’s prisons are already struggling with staff shortages, rising drug use and attacks on guards. Now if Interior Minister Horst Seehofer gets his way, people slated for deportation will also be held in prisons going forward. The initiative, which has divided leaders in the German government, is aimed at curbing the high number of repatriations that have failed because foreigners required to leave the country cannot be found on the day they are to be deported.
Political buffer zone
Seehofer’s initiative is representative of the judiciary’s growing political instrumentalization. “After the events that took place in Cologne on New Year’s Eve [2015-16], public pressure on the courts has increased,” says Peter Brock, chairman of North Rhine-Westphalia BSBD state prison workers’ union. “And then more prison sentences were imposed.”
Refugee policy, a lack of skilled workers, drug consumption, terrorism, political and religious radicalization — Germany’s social problems are mirrored and magnified in the 180 prisons across the country. Brock knows too well the longing to get rid of these issues behind prison walls: “We have to take the rap for all this. That’s our job,” he says.
“Taking the rap” also includes receiving beatings, punches, being spat on and insulted, because violence behind prison walls is increasing. The Free Democrats (FDP) parliamentary group in the Baden-Württemberg parliament tabled a major inquiry in the state government in October 2018 showing that aggressive behavior is becoming increasingly common both between prisoners themselves and towards prison workers.
Unable to work after being beaten
The number of “attacks on staff resulting in incapacity” in Baden-Württemberg’s prisons rose from nine incidents in 2012 to 24 incidents last year. In Saxony, where there are considerably fewer prisoners behind bars, a total of 25 attacks were registered in 2016, a year later it was 31.
The number of prisoners committing suicide has also increased again. According to the Justice Ministry, in North Rhine-Westphalia alone, 19 suicides were recorded in prisons in 2016, returning to the level of the 1990s. In 2009, there were nine cases.
This is just the “tip of the iceberg” for Brock. “I’ve never seen so many attacks against colleagues as in the last three years,” he says. “In 2018 alone, we had over 600 attacks, insults and threats in North Rhine-Westphalia.”
Overcrowding and drug use
The reasons given for this rise in brutalization are always the same: An increasing number of psychological disorders among prisoners, drug and alcohol addiction, communication difficulties, nationality conflicts and overcrowding. In many federal states, the number of available places in prison has declined in recent years. Prisons were either renovated or closed due to a decline in the prison population.
At the same time as prisons were being closed, the unanticipated influx of refugees and immigrants in 2015 led to an increase in the number of prisoners. In North Rhine-Westphalia, which has the highest prison population of any state in Germany at 18,000, the proportion of foreign prisoners rose from 29 percent in 2013 to 36 percent in 2018. In Baden-Württemberg, the figures shot up from 35 percent to 48 percent in the same period.
“With foreign offenders in particular, there is a risk of collusion or escape,” explains Brock. “A German offender may not be imprisoned because he has a permanent residence or a job, so it is assumed that he will not run off. In the case of foreign perpetrators without a fixed place of residence, it is reasonable to assume that they will try to cross the border and will then no longer be within our grasp.”
In North Rhine-Westphalia, many prisons now have integration officers, German and literacy courses are offered, and interpreters and Islamic scholars have been employed. According to Marcus Strunk of the state’s penitentiary directorate, prison violence is declining again as a result.
Suggestions from Berlin? No, thank you!
Strunk shook his head when acknowledging Interior Minister Seehofer’s plan to house asylum-seekers slated for deportation in Germany’s overcrowded prisons. “European law prohibits accommodating deportees and criminals together,” Strunk says. “In addition, the adult penitentiary system is full to capacity.”
In Saxony too, Seehofer’s plan is “not a matter to be considered,” says Jörg Herold, a spokesperson for the state’s Justice Ministry. “We have a deportation facility in Dresden that is not being used to capacity.”
Baden-Württemberg’s Justice Ministry commented on the proposal with a brief statement: “As is generally known, the occupancy situation in Baden-Württemberg’s correctional facilities is tense.””

the gateway pundit – WATCH: BBC News and ‘Hope Not Hate’ Caught on Camera Conspiring to Create Fake News About Tommy Robinson
The BBC and and far-left activist organization ‘Hope Not Hate’ have been caught on camera conspiring together to create fake news about Tommy Robinson.
The BBC’s Panorama was planning to do a hit-style documentary on Robinson — but it has blown up in their face after multiple people secretly recorded conversations with their reporters.
Someone close to Robinson explained to the Gateway Pundit that the BBC, in a joint effort with Hope Not Hate, “contacted and blackmailed Robinson’s former disgruntled employees into fabricating damning evidence to discredit his reputation.”
Unfortunately for them, the former employees recorded the conversations.
Robinson now has video evidence of the BBC’s investigative journalist John Sweeney meeting with a former employee and directing them on what to say.
The source who has the full videos provided the Gateway Pundit with them — but asked they not be released in full yet — and explained that Sweeney “not only makes deals to spin their story but explicitly tells them what to say in the interview for the documentary. Additionally, he is on camera making derogatory comments about Gays, Muslims, Greeks, the working class calling them ‘cannibals from the Amazonian’. He was even recorded telling someone that the BBC can take an argument that is on tape with Robinson and sexualize it to bring him down.”
Earlier this week, Robinson was scheduled to be interviewed for the documentary himself — but he turned the tables when he confronted the documentary team with the transcripts of secret videos he obtained from their production. He also brought his own camera crew to record the interaction.
With the entire meeting filmed, Robinson played the recordings for the BBC producers and Sweeney to confront them on their bias and the coordination with Hope Not Hate. They admitted to Hope Not Hate being present when interviewing Robinson’s former employees — validating the coordination between the two organizations.
Robinson has now released some of the clips from what they have gathered and will be playing them in their entirety outside the BBC offices in Manchester on February 23rd.

Hungary: Anti-Orban protest in Budapest
Hundreds of protesters took to the streets of Budapest on Sunday to protest against Viktor Orban, as the country’s Prime Minister gave his annual state of the nation speech.
The demonstration started at 16:00 (1500 GMT), with protesters marching through the city before gathering outside Orban’s office in Buda Castle.
Organisers said the protest was against the so-called ‘slave law’, dissolution of opposition parties and the elimination of Hungarian democracy.
