Berlin memorial to Roma WWII dead

Work has begun in the German capital, Berlin, on a memorial to the hundreds of thousands of Roma, or Gypsies, killed by the Nazis in World War II.

It will feature a square well brimming with water and bearing an inscription of a poem about the Holocaust.

The leader of Germany's Roma community, Romani Rose, praised the government for"recognising its historical responsibility" to those persecuted.
