BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) -- Supporters of Prime Minister Viktor Orban jostled with a small group of protesters at commemorations of Hungary's 1848 uprising against the Habsburg Empire.

Some 40 protesters holding up posters and jeering Orban and his government -- accusing them of limiting civic rights -- were confronted by some of the several thousand supporters listening Sunday to Orban's speech outside the National Museum.

Orban, who has clashed with the European Union and the United States because of "unorthodox" policies like heavy taxes on foreign companies and crack downs against civic groups, said that while Hungary is "part of Europe ... Europe is full of questions and Hungary is full of answers."

Orban's Fidesz party won three elections last year but a loss in a recent by-election ended its two-thirds parliamentary majority.
