A controversial wall separating 37 mostly Gypsy families from other residents in this northern Bohemian town was pulled down Wednesday by city authorities. The 6-foot-high, 65-yard-long barricade was put up in Usti nad Labem after the residents of three small houses complained about the noise coming from their ethnic minority neighbors living in two apartment buildings across the road. Authorities built the wall in October, prompting sharp criticism inside and outside the Czech Republic.
