    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.

    Al Jazeera's Charlie Angela reports from Budapest.
