16 September 2010 Last updated at 17:05 BST

French President Nicolas Sarkozy has said he and other EU heads of state were "shocked" by comparisons between France's removal of Roma (Gypsies) and the plight of Gypsies during WWII.

EU Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding had previously appeared to compare France's actions to persecutions in Nazi-occupied France.

Speaking after a one-day summit in Brussels, Mr Sarkozy said France would continue to dismantle Roma camps.
