One child died and other 4 were injured in a fire on Monday morning in a gypsy camp in Bologna’s outskirts in Northern Italy, news agency ANSA announces. The improvised camp was next to the Guglielmo Marconi airport.
Police at the scene said that a four year old child died and four others were severely injured.
According to preliminary information, the fire broke in a Gypsy barrack near two abandoned houses.
The barracks are located right next to the highway, at less than a hundred meter from the airport exit.

Italian PM Romano Prodi said he was deeply sorrowed by the Bologna event.
