A little blonde girl in Greece is at the center of a Europe-wide controversy over the treatment of Roma people - sometimes known as "gypsies." The girl, named Maria, was taken into care from a Roma community over fears she had been abducted. But it appears authorities may have gotten it wrong. As Henry Ridgwell reports for VOA from Rome, which has a big Roma population, there have been allegations of human rights abuses against Roma people across Europe.
