Hungary builds dam to contain second toxic flood risk
Hungarian work crews are racing against time to build an emergency dam as cracks widened at a burst reservoir that spilled toxic sludge.
The wall of the reservoir could collapse within a day or a week, Environment State Secretary Zoltan Illes said.
A new wall is being built to protect villages already devastated by the flood of industrial waste on 4 October.
