Attack on Roma camp in Triel, France

Filed under: France — twentyonemiles @ 10:09 am

Around 3am on 28th October, there was a violent attack on Roma families living on a site in Triel, north-west of Paris. 4 armed hooded people drove to the site and stole bags, wallets, documents and money from the inhabitants who were sleeping in their caravans.

The victims called the police several times but they did not come. They then contacted members of the Collectif RomYvelines who contacted the police, who finally came to the site to investigate. The Sous Préfet has said that “all means will be disposed so that the inquiry can shed light on this affair”.
