The mayor of Esztergom, N Hungary, had
his house and car set on fire on the same night, local disaster
management spokesman Sandor Varady-Cseppely told MTI on Tuesday.
Mayor Tamas Meggyes, who is also an MP for the main opposition
Fidesz party, told MTI that he woke up to the sound of the alarm of
his car, which was parked outside of his current home, at around
0330 on Tuesday morning.
The car had been set alight by a petrol bomb. Firemen arriving
at the scene told Meggyes that the roof of another property
belonging to Megyes — a partially-completed house in the outskirts
of the city — had been set on fire.
The perpetrator had left behind some ten cans of petrol.
Police have launched an investigation.
