BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungarian Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany rejected opposition calls to quit and vowed to press on with tough economic reforms on Tuesday as Budapest remained on edge after violent anti-government protests. The riots, in which over 150 people were hurt, followed the leak of a tape on Sunday in which Gyurcsany said he and his Socialist party had lied for four years about Hungary's budget in order to win a general election in April. Thousands of people took to the streets of Budapest late on Monday, occupying and setting fire to the state television building and fighting with riot police in the first such violence since communism collapsed at the end of the 1980s.
