Bulgarian rally links Roma to organised crime

About 2,000 Bulgarians have marched in the centre of the capital, Sofia, in an anti-Roma protest, the BBC said. The demonstrators said they were against corruption and organised crime, which they linked to Bulgaria’s Roma or gypsy ethnic minority. There have been protests and sporadic violence since the death a week ago of a youth hit by a car driven by relatives of a Roma clan boss. President Georgy Parvanov has called for “an end to the language of hatred”.
