Romani people in Algeria are reported to include at least two groups: the Afrikaya, and the Xoraxane. The Afrikaya are possibly of Manouche origins, and speak French. The Xoraxane are Muslim and their original language is Romani. Roma in general ultimately come from South Asia, particularly from Northern India, having reached the Mediterranean region in Byzantine times.[2][3]
