Budapest police officer injured in bombing awakes from coma

If you have any helpful information, police can be contacted through the toll-free telephone number 06-80/620-107, 06-80/555-111, on either of the central emergency numbers (107; 112) or in person at any police station

The Hungarian policewoman injured in the Budapest bomb attack has been woken from her coma but cannot remember a thing about the blast, according to reports.

The injured 23-year-old, named only as Sabina, received a serious head injury from the blast, which happened on Saturday night near Oktogon in central Budapest.

According to the UK's Daily Express newspaper, Sabina was kept in an artificially induced coma due to her serious injuries.

Doctors said she does not remember anything of the incident, but think her memory loss could be down to post-traumatic stress and could be temporary.

Detectives hope her memory will return so she can give a description of the attacker.
He is still on the run after the incident, near the Cornithia Hotel on Teréz Körút.

The other police officer injured in the attack, named only as László, was seriously wounded in his leg and is now recovering from his injuries.

The police officers were walking along the pavement when they were blown off their feet as the powerful explosion damaged nearby buildings and incited widespread panic.

Police have put forward a 10 million HUF reward for help in catching the culprit, who was seen throwing an item at the officers seconds before the explosion rocked the busy street.

CCTV footage shows the attacker, a white male aged between 20-25 years, walking up and down the street shortly before the attack wearing a white fishing hat, jeans, white trainers, a dark canvas jacket and holding a suspicious item in his hand.
