Pope Francis greets people in Heroes’ Square in the Hungarian capital Budapest before mass

Pope Francis, during a short visit to Hungary, warned that the danger of anti-Semitism “still lurks” in Europe.

The pope’s warning came during an interview after his meeting with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, a populist and anti-immigrant, with whom he differed sharply and clearly on the issue of refugees.

Orban is accused of taking anti-Semitic positions, but has described the accusations as “ridiculous”.

In a Facebook post, the prime minister said he had “asked Pope Francis not to let Christian Hungary weaken and perish”.
