Roma children look out of the window their home in a shantytown in the Craica neighbourhood of Baia Mare, northwestern Romania on Feb. 28, 2013. Local authorities have been demolishing the shanties and rehousing Roma families in various types of accommodation, ranging from disused factories to old government offices. As of February 2013, plans to build modern social housing for the Roma are in limbo while funding is finalised and the search for a suitable site continues.
