Gypsy problems in Bulgaria

It seems it's not only us who have "traveller" issues. Near the Bulgarian second city of Plovdiv conflict on the scale of a small war had broken out. The Gypsy "King" Kiro had someone killed and next thing you know 3,000 outraged local residents have marched on his house and tried to run him out of town.

Violence against gypsies then spread to other cities. The prime minister Georgi Parvanov deployed special police units and there have been 120 arrests.

This makes our problems at Dale Farm look small beer in comparison.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about all this is that our mainstream media isn't reporting it at all. To learn more you will have to visit Pravda.
