Jobbik office burns

The head office of the right-wing nationalist party Jobbik was vandalized and set on fire. The windows of the building where the office is located was spit on and the locks of the building were damaged. The overall damage to the building was minimal after a quick response by firefighters. A Jobbik spokesmen said that these types of actions against them will not intimidate them and that they will continue their work.
