Editors, more than 50 journalists quit leading Hungarian news website

BUDAPEST, July 24 (Reuters) - Three editors of Hungary’s leading independent news website Index.hu and more than 50 journalists resigned on Friday over the recent ousting of their editor-in-chief, which they said was an “open attempt to exert pressure” on Index.

They said in a statement on Index that they quit after the chairman of the board rejected their request to restore Szabolcs Dull to his position. (Reporting by Krisztina Than and Marton Dunai; Editing by Jon Boyle)
