The Hungarian government is seeking to sign a “new” trade pact with the United States as the planned free trade agreement between the European Union and the United States, known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), “will not happen,” Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said today, according to Hungarian news agency MTI.
The Hungarian government has declared a national day of mourning today in memory of the victims of the fatal crash in Italy in which 16 people were killed and dozens injured, when a bus carrying students from Hungary hit a pillar and burst into flames on a motorway near Verona at about 11 pm Friday.

Media reports that at least 16 people have died, and as many as 40 have been injured, after a Hungarian coach, carrying mostly teenagers, crashed and caught fire on the motorway near Verona, Italy late Friday night.
More than 10,000 signatures were collected on the first day of a campaign by Hungarian youth organization Momentum Mozgalom against Hungaryʼs bid to host the 2024 Summer Olympics. Meanwhile, a mock political party gathered HUF 1 million for billboards promoting the signature collection, while government-friendly media attacked the campaign.
