Jews in Budapest continue to besiege the Israeli legation there in an effort to secure visas to Israel prior to being expelled from the Hungarian capital, the Budapest correspondent of the London Times reports today. The report says that the Jews are under the impression that the possession of Israeli visas would exempt them from leaving the city under 12-hour notice.
