Reports from Austria say that Cardinal Joseph Mindszenty has been sent back to prison after refusing to sign a pledge of loyalty to the Hungarian government.

As Catholic prelate in Hungary, Mindszenty had been sentenced to life in prison in 1949 for "treason" and "espionage," but he was "allowed to interrupt his term" in 1955.

He was let out of prison, but had to move to an asylum for retired priests in Vas in southern Hungary. Now he is back in prison.
