Hungarian police have called on psychological assistance in the hunt for those behind a bizarre wave of bombings of famous landmarks, writes Adrian Bridge. Zsolt Sogor, spokesman for the Budapest police, told Hungarian television that psychologists had been enlisted to work out the motivation for the blasts, the first of their kind in post-Communist Hungary. He said police were searching for a married couple and a photographer seen near the site of the latest attack, on Budapest's Mathias church. Investigators believe the blasts may be the work of the Serbian mafia, increasingly involved in smuggling and protection rackets in southern Hungary.
