A father and his 5-year-old son were shot dead in an attack on a Roma family home in Hungary, and two children were injured when the house caught fire, local news agency MTI reported.

The attack in Tatarszentgyorgy, a village 40 miles southeast of Budapest, is the latest in a series on Roma houses in which seven people have died over the last year.

Viktoria Mohacsi, a Roma Hungarian member of the European Parliament, said after visiting the scene that the two Roma were shot as they were trying to escape the house.

Police said it was too early to give any details.
