Hungary urges EU members to present Roma plans
A Hungarian official who oversees programs to aid the country's Roma population is urging other European nations to fulfill earlier pledges to present strategies for integrating the minority group.
There are an estimated 10-12 million Roma, or Gypsies, in Europe — often its poorest and least educated citizens. The continent's economic crisis is an opportunity to pay closer attention to the group, which also faces widespread discrimination, said Zoltan Balog, Hungary's state secretary for social inclusion.
