Disputed Hungary Holocaust monument sparks fresh protest

- +

Several hundred protesters blocked work on a controversial monument in Budapest Tuesday which Jewish critics say glosses over Hungary's active role in the Holocaust. 

Participants pull down a mental fence cordon around a supposed place of a memorial place of the Nazi occupation of Hungary in 1944, at the Szabadsag (Freedom) square of Budapest on April 8, 2014

Around 300 people angrily tore down a cordon erected by workers and occupied the site of the planned monument, which the Hungarian government says will mark all the victims of Hungary's occupation by Nazi Germany in 1944.
