Bulgaria security council discusses ethnic tension (AP)

SOFIA, Bulgaria – The Bulgarian president says the National Security Council is holding an emergency meeting to discuss rising ethnic tensions as nationalist groups stage anti-Roma rallies across the country.

According to a statement from Georgi Parvanov’s office on Saturday, the council is scheduled to shape “emergency measures to guarantee law and order in the country and prevent and counter ethnic tensions.”

Riots erupted last weekend in the southern village of Katunitsa after a 19-year-old man was run over and killed by a minibus driven by a man linked to a local leader of the Roma, also known as Gypsies.

Villagers hurled stones and firebombs at Roma leader’s house, demanding he and his family be expelled.
