Hungary in trouble

Hungary’s right-wing coalition wins big in parliamentary elections. That means Prime Minister Viktor Orban will serve another term in office and promote his xenophobic policies. The European Parliament’s Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs committee has announced plans to introduce sanctions against the EU country. Orban’s government is being accused of undermining the independence of the judiciary, freedom of press and fundamental rights of its citizens.

Syria attacked

The US and its allies, France and the UK finally went ahead with a strike on Syria. The pretext of the strike was an alleged chemical attack in the Syrian city of Douma last Saturday. While the raid was against international law, it was still not in the proportions US President Donald Trump had warned of. Many believe the scale of the attack shows the raid was only meant to save face and overshadow the multiple scandals the US president is faced with at home.
