Hungary opened a criminal investigation into the caustic sludge flood on Wednesday and the European Union urged emergency authorities to do everything they could to keep the contaminated slurry from reaching the Danube River and affecting half a dozen other nations along its course.
Hundreds of people had to be evacuated after a gigantic sludge reservoir burst on Monday at a metals plant in Ajka, a town 100 miles (160 kilometres) southwest of Budapest, the capital.
At least four people were killed, three are still missing and 120 were injured as the unstoppable torrent inundated homes, swept cars off roads and disgorged an estimated one (m) million cubic metres (35 million cubic feet) of red sludge onto several nearby towns.
It was still not known on Wednesday why part of the reservoir failed.
Women with trousers coated with red mud cleared the muck away from their homes with snow shovels.
