Banned Belgrade radio aired from Hungary

BUDAPEST, May 30, 2000 -- (Reuters) Programs of banned Belgrade radio station B2-92 will be broadcast by a radio station in neighboring Hungary from Wednesday, officials of the two stations said on Monday.

Radio Tilos, an alternative Budapest station, will air B2-92's Serbian-language programming in half hour slots five days a week and will broadcast news Monday through Thursday and on Sunday at 10 p.m., Zoltan Rozgonyi of Radio Tilos said.

"We will continue to broadcast B2-92 programs until the Belgrade station gets back its studio and equipment," Rozgonyi told reporters in a report carried by Hungarian news agency MTI.

The Belgrade radio was shut on May 17 when Serbian security took over offices it shared with television station Studio B.

The television station was run by Belgrade's city government controlled by Serbia's largest opposition party, the Serbian Renewal Movement.
