France pioneers Roma programme

Amid controversy over deportations, a scheme to help vulnerable minority continues.


    France has come under fire recently for dismantling Roma camps around the country and deporting hundreds to Romania and Bulgaria.

    Over the weekend thousands of people took to the streets in French cities to protest the government's action.

    But away from the controversies, a pioneering scheme to help integrate Roma continues its work just outside Paris, the French capital.
