CSOKAKO - About 1,000 Hungarians attended the unveiling of a statue of controversial World War Two head of state Miklos Horthy on Saturday, in a sign that economic hardship is feeding radical nationalism.

Activists in paramilitary outfits flew the flags of the far-right Jobbik opposition party and various nationalist groups in the village of Csokako, 87 km (54 miles) west of Budapest, which has erected the statue.

Horthy ruled Hungary for 24 years and, as head of state in the early years of World War Two, entered an uneasy alliance with Nazi Germany.
