Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

There were some small squirmishes since. Police caught the sling-shot squad. Some last rioters even began to fight among themselves, over whether further rubbish bins should be put on fire or not. It appears there are relatively few injured this time -- so despite the scaremongering in advance, it seems police too acted in a more civilised way. (But this may change when all hospitals report by tomorrow morning...)

Regarding how the riots developed, reports are contradictory. The new version I read is that the arrest of Budaházy (in the early afternoon, and near where I walked), who was in disguise, sparked the rioting: his people apparently believed to know where he is held, and first assembled after SMS calls near that police building.

Apparently not. Only six treated people were reported this morning, too. Also, there were only 36 arrests. Clean-up was estimated to cost €60,000.
