Teen girl admits she made up rape story after Turin Roma gypsy camp is torched

A 16-year-old Italian girl has admitted that she made up a story about being raped by gypsies. But her admission comes too late to prevent a horde of around 50 locals from taking revenge; the gang set fire to large parts of the Turin Roma camp over the weekend.

Residents of the deprived Turin suburb of Vallette were shocked last week when the girl claimed she had been dragged behind nearby buildings and raped by two gypsy men. Hundreds of protesters gathered to call for the camps to be removed, and some then marched to the camp and tried to destroy it.

The mob is said to have warned gypsies to leave the camp, and no-one was injured in the incident. But the camp has now been destroyed and it remains to be seen where the gypsies will go next.
