Hungary sludge scars yet to heal

Village of Kolantar still struggling four months after deadly toxic spill.



    Hungary experienced its worst environmental disaster in October 2010 when a toxic spill from a reservoir stained the countryside red and left several people dead. 

    The community is still trying to recover, but nearly four months after toxic sludge covered the Hungarian village of Kolantar, the locals have yet to rebuild their lives.
