Large protest in support of Hungary's Soros-backed university
Thousands of people have taken part in a protest in Hungary to demand the abolition of laws which could force the closure of one of the country's most prestigious universities. New rules introduced by the government mean the Central European University (CEU) would be unable to award diplomas because it is registered in the US. The university was founded by philanthropist George Soros. The legislation has already been rushed through parliament.
