Hungarian police have arrested 25 people following a deadly bus rampage in central Budapest on Sunday, local media reported.
The police, responding to a call from a concerned citizen, raided several addresses in central and eastern Budapest, with no arrests reported.
The attack took place in central downtown and a bus station in central Miskolc, a tourist area on the outskirts of the city, the Hungarian News Agency reported.
It said police were questioning the driver of the bus, who has not been named, and found that the bus had been packed with more than a hundred people and had a number of explosives strapped to the front seat.
A passerby who saw the bus attack told the local radio station that the suspects had shouted “death to the communists!” and “you are a traitor!”, while the driver also shouted “the communists are murderers!”, the news agency said.
The driver was reportedly detained, the news site reported.
A police spokeswoman told Reuters news agency that police were not looking for anyone in connection with the attack, but the investigation was ongoing.
The Hungarian police force is investigating the incident, and a spokesman for the interior ministry said they were looking into the possible link between the incident and the murder of two local police officers in March, as well as the disappearance of a police dog.
“We are looking into these two incidents,” said spokesman István Fakul.
“We will look into this matter in a comprehensive way.”
