Italy: Roma camp in Turin razed by authorities following fire

An unauthorised Roma camp on Corso Tazzoli in Turin was demolished in the early hours of Tuesday following a blaze breaking out in the settlement on May 27. The camp's 190 residents had to evacuate from the area on Monday after the mayor of Turin, Chiara Appendino, issued an eviction order. Local authorities announced that it will provide temporary accommodation for the displaced people... Еще. Authorities' main focus was on removing further fire hazards such as gas canisters and electrical devices. A member of 'Associazione Italiana Zingari Oggi', Carla Osella, said that the decision came 'from the new government.' She pointed to the words of the new Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, who said that he would have already 'evicted everyone from the camps.' She added that some of the camp's residents had health problems such as cancer. According to reports, the fire in the camp occurred as the residents used illegal electrical generators and liquid fuel to set up fires.
