Spurred by protests from Jewish organizations, Hungary's prime minister asked the country's chief prosecutor Wednesday to keep tabs on a new extreme nationalist group. The Magyar Garda (Hungarian Guard) was formed recently by members of Jobbik, a small far-right party. Little is known about the group. Earlier this month, Mazsihisz, a Hungarian Jewish umbrella group, called on the government to ban the Magyar Garda, saying its black uniforms were reminiscent of the Fascists from the 1940s. The World Jewish Congress and the European Jewish Congress also asked for action against the Magyar Garda.
