Video: Hungary Assures Canada Of Its Solidarity After Toronto Tragedy
Hungary’s foreign ministry in a statement on Tuesday expressed the country’s solidarity with Canada in the wake of the deaths of pedestrians in a van attack in Toronto.

“We assure our ally Canada of our solidarity and we express our condolences to the families of the deceased, and wish the injured a speedy recovery,” the statement said.

The ministry said it had no knowledge of any Hungarians who may have been caught up in the incident in which ten people died and 16 were injured in central Toronto when a van ploughed into them on the pavement.
