Spain apologizes to Roma for 'institutional racism'

Pablo Iglesias admits Spain repressed Roma community throughout history


Spain on Thursday apologized for "institutional racism" in the country against people in the Roma ethnic community.

"I want to ask the gypsy people for forgiveness in the name of the government," said Second Deputy Prime Minister Pablo Iglesias at an event in Madrid to commemorate the Nazi genocide against the community during World War II.

Iglesias used the event to reflect on Spain's own attempts to oppress and exterminate the community.
