Hungary firm wants to restart production after spill

BUDAPEST, Oct 6 (Reuters) - Hungarian aluminium maker MAL Zrt, owner of the sludge reservoir which burst on Monday, would like to restart production at its alumina plant at the weekend, its chairman was quoted saying on Inforadio on Wednesday.

The government suspended production at the company on Tuesday and declared a state of emergency in three counties after a torrent of toxic red sludge from the alumina plant owned by MAL tore through local villages, killing four people and injuring 120.
