A shocking study by Human Rights Watch shows how the Roma community of Kosova is being exterminated. Isabel Fonseca, writing in The Observer, has details.
It's not exactly a squatter issue. But only about 20,000 of the original 200,000 population of Kosova Roma remain in the country--and in many encampments they are enduring lead poisoning from old mines. Weirdly, Fonseca reports, the UN created the refugee camps the Roma are now languishing in, so the international agency bears great responsibility.
