Macedonia ex-PM Nikola Gruevski 'seeks asylum in Hungary'
Macedonia's former Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski has reportedly fled to Hungary after failing to show up to begin a two-year prison sentence. In a Facebook post, Mr Gruevski said he was in Budapest and had requested "Political asylum". Hungarian authorities have not confirmed his asylum application. Mr Gruevski reportedly did not leave the country "Through a legal border crossing", according to an anonymous police officer quoted by Reuters. Violence erupted in the streets of Macedonia in 2015 in protest against Mr Gruevski's government, which culminated in his resignation in January 2016.
