French police clear Roma camp in centre of Roubaix
Police in the northern French town of Roubaix have dismantled a Roma (Gypsy) camp, days after the interior minister said most Roma should be expelled.
Officers moved in around 07:00 (05:00 GMT) to remove caravans parked in the sprawling camp as Roma families hastily packed up their belongings.
Many people had already left the camp, where 200 people were living, during the night, French media report.
