A Hungary court sentenced three men who verbally abused attendees of the World Jewish Congress (WJC) Conference with two and three years in jail, news agency MTI reported on Friday.

The three men shouted Nazi slogans and anti-Semitic remarks, and made Nazi salutes at visitors attending the WJC Conference in Budapest earlier this week, near the city's Great Synagogue.

Convicted in a fast-track trial, one man received a three-year prison sentence, while the other two received two-year sentences, both suspended for three years, MTI reported.
