UN warns France over Roma deportations

Anti-racism panel says France should integrate Roma rather than deport them to Romania.

    The United Nations has strongly condemned France's recent deportations of hundreds of Roma.

    The organisation's anti-racism panel also hit out at Iran for discriminating against minorities.

    Both countries were among a dozen being investigated for alleged racism.
