nNE hundred and fifty teenagers who were imprisoned in Budapest on charges of taking part in the 1456 Hungarian uprising were executed in December, according to the B.B.C. correspondent in Vienna, Mr. Douglas Stewart. Details of the executions were broadcast seven times last weekend in the B.B.C. Hungarian service. Previous reports that the Hungarian Government planned to
execute these young people as soon as they attained the age of 18 had been treated with reserve in London and were officially denied in Budapest.
A spokesman at the Hungarian Legation in London, on Tuesday, declared that the B.B.C. correspondent's report of the execution was "a lie—one of the biggest tics of the century". That was all he had to say.
