BUDAPEST Oct 5 Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor
Orban said on Tuesday a sludge spill in western Hungary that
killed four people may have been caused by human error and there
was no sign of it being due to natural causes.
Orban also told a news conference there was no threat of
radiation in the area affected by the flood of red mud from the
reservoir of an alumina factory, owned by MAL Zrt.
Hungary declared a state of emergency in three counties
earlier on Tuesday, the day after a torrent of toxic red sludge
tore through local villages, killing four people and injuring
about 120. [ID:nLDE6940WA]
