BUDAPEST - Hungary fast-tracked a new law through parliament on Tuesday that could force Budapest-based Central European University, founded by financier George Soros, out of the country.

Lawmakers passed the legislation with 123 votes in favor and 38 against, while 38 deputies did not vote. Voting was briefly interrupted by the sound of a siren blaring from a megaphone held up by an independent lawmaker in protest at the plan, which has been condemned in Hungary and overseas as an attack on academic freedom.
