Former Hungarian politician Bela Biszku has died

Former Hungarian politician Bela Biszku has died.

He was the only high-ranking communist-era official to be tried for his role in a deadly crackdown after the 1956 anti-Soviet revolt.

Biszku was part of the Communist Party’s executive committee. It created armed militias which killed dozens.
