    More toxic sludge expected in Hungary
    The wall of a reservoir filled with caustic red sludge will inevitably collapse and unleash a new deluge, an official says.
    That would flood parts of the town already hit by the industrial waste on Monday but stop short of the next town to the north.
    Environmental State Secretary Zoltan Illes said recently discovered cracks on the northern wall of the reservoir at the alumina plant have temporarily stopped widening because of favorable weather conditions but will continue to expand, especially at night.
    The reservoir could collapse "within one day or a week," he said.
