Ghetto priest rallies Jamaican poor

THEY CALL him the Ghetto Priest, something of a male version of Mother Teresa, most often seen tramping Kingston's slums in white robe, blue sash and sandals. The fact that he has written a number-one reggae single and dozens of musicals, and writes a newspaper column, gives him considerably more street cred than your average clergyman.

Jews? I liked them all my life, said the old man in the dock for Nazi killings

THE OLD man stood up instantly when his name was called yesterday. As he moved slowly across the floor of the Old Bailey's number 12 courtroom, there was a quiet determination, almost a kind of defiance, about him.

Letter: Gypsies in the Ghetto

Sir: I have studied the social and political situations of the Roma minority in the Czech Republic during the past two years. I am pleased to note that the British media is devoting more attention to Europe's most silent victims of racism ("Czech cities plan `apartheid' wall around gypsy ghettoes", 27 May) . The situation is even more difficult than you portrayed. I have often been shocked by the violent reactions that otherwise respectable Czech citizens have towards their Roma neighbours.

Czech cities wall off gypsy ghetto
