BUDAPEST (Reuter) - The heads of Hungary's national radio and television submitted their resignations, contending they could no longer guarantee the broadcasters' impartiality. President Arpad Goncz said he understood why Elemer Hankiss and his radio counterpart, Csaba Gombar, had asked to resign. Their offer is the latest twist in a political war that has pitted Jozsef Antall's centre- right government against Mr Goncz, the liberal opposition and many news organisations.
