EU may take legal action against France over Roma
The EU Justice Commissioner, Viviane Reding, says the European Commission is considering legal action against France over its deportations of Roma (Gypsies).
Ms Reding called French actions a "disgrace".
Last week Euro MPs accused the Commission of failing to protect hundreds of Roma deported from France.
France denies that the expulsions target an ethnic group, saying they are done on a case-by-case basis.
