The Pogrom Starts Again: 'Gypsies' Hunting in Iraq

16-07-2003 21:05

Few people took notice of the last pogrom of the second millennium, when the allies of the West drove the Roma, or "Gypsies", out of the land in Kosovo where they had lived for centuries [Elsewhere on can read one of the few narratives of this forgotten deportation]. Four years have gone by, and another humanitarian war has brought about its collateral damage: an even more ancient community of the Roma is being driven, this time from Iraq. Mesopotamia, in fact, was an earlier stopping place along the road which led these people from India to Spain.

First Sgt. Christopher Coffin, 51, became the fifth soldier with Maine ties to die in Iraq after his vehicle ran into a ditch on July 1. He was a member of the 352nd Civil Affairs Command assisting convoys traveling between Baghdad and Kuwait. The details of Coffin's death have been mired in confusion since the day it was announced by the military. Initially, a press release from Coffin's unit stated he died after his vehicle swerved to avoid a civilian vehicle. But a report from the U.S. Central Command issued a day before said a member of Coffin's unit was killed July 1 when his convoy was hit by "an improvised explosive device." That report did not name Coffin, but he was the only member of his unit to die that day. Now a new report from Time, citing "Coffin family members and U.S. government officials looking into the case," says Coffin's vehicle was deliberately run off the road, then surrounded by an angry mob. A Humvee following Coffin stopped to help, but was also overwhelmed and then set on fire. A third team of soldiers, the article says, was brought in and fired rifles in the air to disperse the crowd. Representatives from Army headquarters and U.S. Central Command had no comment on Time's report.
