Protests greet Hungary constitutional changes

Critics say ruling party getting rid of democratic institutions and tightening grip on power.

    Around 30,000 Hungarians have protested against changes to their constitution which give the government more control over the media and the courts.

    Protesters say the ruling Fidesz party is getting rid of democratic institutions and tightening its grip on power.

    But the government says the amendments complete Hungary's transition from communism to democracy.
