Czech leader under fire over pig farm at ex-Nazi camp

Anti-racism campaigners reacted with indignation Friday after Czech President Milos Zeman said he backed keeping open a pig farm on the site of a former Nazi camp for Roma people. "These declarations are a grave offence for victims and survivors of the Holocaust and their families," Miroslav Broz of the anti-racism association Konexe told AFP.
