REUTERS - Prime Minister Viktor Orban visited the area around an alumina plant which flooded parts of western Hungary with toxic sludge last week and his government will decide later on Wednesday whether to restart production. Latest checks showed no further deterioration in the damaged wall of its giant reservoir, Gyorgyi Tottos, a spokeswoman for disaster crews on the scene, told Reuters. Orban has blamed "human negligence" for the escape of industrial waste at MAL Zrt's plant that killed nine people, injured over 120 and polluted a tributary of the Danube. The National Disaster Unit said on its website the latest victim died in hospital on Wednesday of injuries sustained during the spill.
