Hungarian PM Wins Third Straight Term
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban is celebrating what he calls a "great victory" for Hungary after his anti-immigration Fidesz party won a large majority in Sunday's parliamentary election.
With almost all the votes counted, Fidesz and its Christian Democrat allies are expected to wind up with 133 seats in the 199-seat parliament.
The nationalist Jobbik party will finish with 26 seats, while the Socialists will control 20 seats.
Orban will serve his third straight term as Hungary's prime minister and his fourth overall.
Orban largely campaigned on an anti-immigrant anti-migration platform, warning that Muslim migration "is like a rust that slowly but surely would consume Hungary."
He also accused the European Union of trying to take Hungary away from Hungarians and dilute European culture.
Hungary has built border fences and passed laws aimed at keeping it from becoming a route for migrants heading into Western Europe from places such as Syria and Afghanistan.
Prosecutors Indict Former South Korean President Lee For Corruption
South Korean prosecutors have indicted former President Lee Myung-bak on charges that include bribery and embezzlement.
He is accused of accepting $10 million in bribes from South Korea's spy agency as well as Samsung. Prosecutors also say Lee embezzled $33 million from a private company he owned.
Lee denies any wrongdoing, saying the charges are political. He has been in custody since last month.
The conservative businessman who governed from 2008 to 2013 is the fourth living South Korean leader to be entangled in corruption allegations before leaving office or in the years afterwards.
His successor, Park Geun-hye, was sentenced to 24 years in prison in a separate corruption scandal on Friday.
