Some Romanian and Bulgarian Roma communities from Paris have been recently the target of unprovoked vigilante attacks over hysteria fake accusations about kidnapping children for prostitution rings or for organ trafficking.

Some 20 people were arrested on Monday night after attacking the Roma community with sidearms.F

French police chiefs warned officers of “a psychosis that is starting to set in,”, yet adding that accusations are “totally unfounded”.

Claims of a man in a van abducting children for the prostitution rings or the illegal organ trade have rapidly spread online in the past weeks.

The accusations’ authors argue that the alleged van that “kidnapped” kids is sometimes white, red, or yellow, in a different region, or has Bulgarian or Romanian registration plates.

However, police says there is no evidence of any of them, BBC reported.
