Concern raised over Roma expulsions

France begins deporting 700 Roma prompting criticism the move could help fuel racism.

    After destroying their homes and giving them $383, France is flying 700 Roma people to Romania and Bulgaria.

    The government has been dismantling Roma settlements, saying they were havens for illegal trafficking, child exploitation, begging and prostitution.

    But Romania's foreign minister says he's worried France's action is creating xenophobia.

    Al Jazeera's Estelle Youssouffa reports.
