    Hungary's conservative-dominated parliament has passed a controversial bill that could force the closure of a popular foreign university in Budapest.

    The parliament changed the rules that regulate the country's 28 foreign universities, stating that they must have a campus in their country of origin.

    The Central European University, registered in New York, is the only university to fall foul of the new law.
