French town focus on integrating Roma

France's Roma population is estimated to be between 15 and 20 thousand people and politicians are predicting a surge.

    EU restrictions are set to soon be lifted on Romania and Bulgaria, allowing their citizens to move freely around Europe and many are expected to want to join the members of their community already living in France.

    In 2010, the French government began to dismantle what it called 'illegal camps', prioritising those inhabited by Roma.

    But rather than pushing them out, the small town of Indre in Western France is focusing on integrating Roma.

    Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland reports from Indre, Western France.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
