The UN rights chief on Friday condemned what he described as a "systematic national policy" in France to evict Roma, two weeks after more than 150 people were forced from a shantytown north of Paris.

"It is becoming increasingly apparent that there is a systematic national policy to forcibly evict the Roma," Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said in a statement, attacking the policy as "punitive and destructive."
