Pogrom against Romas in Loschynivka
Journalists have visited the scene of the pogrom against the Roma people in the village of Loschynivka in Odesa region's Izmail district, where the body of an eight-year-old girl, who was brutally murdered, had been found.
Houses belonging to poor members of the Roma community were reportedly damaged, while the wealthier members' three houses remained undamaged.
Answering questions from journalists, local residents said they had not touched the houses of those who had been living in the village for a long time. They say, however, that they are unhappy with those Romas who came to the village about three years ago.
