Romas mark anniversary of Nazi genocide

Hundreds of thousands of Roma people were massacred 71 years ago during Holocaust in central Europe.

    Sunday marks the 71st anniversary of the mass killings of Europe's Roma, an event which countries in Central Europe often remain reluctant to acknowledge.

    It is believed that 500,000 Roma people were killed by the Nazis, but historians in Hungary say many more Roma may have died than previously thought, describing it as a genocide.

    Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports from Hungary.
