4 guilty of race hate in Roma camp fire

In Turin in 2011

(ANSA) - Rome, July 13 - Four people were found guilty Friday of ethnic and racial hatred in setting fire to a Roma camp in Turin in 2011, judicial sources said.
    A Turin appeals court found them guilty of starting the fire after a protest rally against the camp in the outlying Vallette district.
    When the sentence was read out, one of the onlookers outside the courtroom shouted out "it's a joke".
    But the court cut the sentences of those found guilty to 2-4 years, judicial sources said.
    The protest took place after a girl, to hide from her parents that she had had sex, "fabricated a story that she had been raped by Gypsies", the sentence said.
