A 52-year-old Syrian man was killed in a drive-by shooting in Budapest, AFP reported on Wednesday afternoon, citing a Hungarian police source.

The man was reportedly shot as he was driving his own car through the Hungarian capital on Wednesday morning. Budapest police spokesman Oszkar Sass told the news agency that the attack or attackers stole a briefcase from the car, then "fled on foot."
