Hungarians protest over internet tax plans

Thousands of people have been taking part in a protest in Hungary against government plans to tax the internet, one of the first such attempts in the world.

Prime Minister Viktor Orban's government, which has been widely accused of adopting anti-democratic policies, first unveiled plans for the new tax in the draft 2015 tax bill submitted to parliament.
