Hungarian PM threatens to leave EU conservative bloc

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban says his ruling Fidesz party may quit the largest bloc in the European Parliament.

The row between him and the centre-right European People's Party (EPP) continues to heat up ahead of crucial continent-wide elections in May.

Orban says he wants to move the EPP towards a more anti-immigration platform, and his party will meet on March 20 to discuss the matter.
