Hungary passes law that could block Uber sites

By Marton Dunai BUDAPEST (Reuters) – Hungary passed legislation on Monday which could curb the activities of Uber after months of protests by taxi drivers, following in the footsteps of other countries that have banned some of its ride-hailing services.
