POLICE are investigating possible links to terrorism after a ‘nail bomb’ detonated in central Budapest, seriously injuring two police officers and triggering evacuations in the Hungarian capital days before a crucial vote on the country’s migration policy.

Police sources said they believed the attack was deliberate and may have been targeting police officers.

Witnesses described seeing an attacker waiting in a doorway before throwing the explosive device packed with nails at two officers as they passed by the buidling.

The incident comes just a week before Hungarians go to the polls in a nationwide referendum that will set the direction of the country’s migration policy.

Critics of hardline prime minister Viktor Orban have claimed that the blast, which struck near a shop in central Budapest at around 10.30pm local time on Saturday evening, was orchestrated by the government to stoke up fear in the days before the key vote.

The Hungarian PM has been a vocal opponent of immigration into Europe and is urging voters to reject EU quotas for resettling migrants in Hungary in a referendum next Sunday, arguing immigration increases security risks.

Hungary has seen only a trickle of migrants since it sealed its southern border with Serbia with a razor wire fence last year.
