Horsemeat scandal: Inside a Romanian abattoir

As ministers from European countries prepare to discuss the horsemeat scandal, the BBC's Nick Thorpe visited an abattoir in Romania, a country accused of supplying horsemeat instead of beef.

Romania has vehemently denied it was the source of horsemeat sold as beef which has turned up in processed meat products in Britain and throughout Europe.

The BBC's Nick Thorpe went to an abattoir in Botosani to see how it separated beef from horsemeat.
