According to the police, 22 Iraqis were also arrested. In addition, a larger group tried to cross the border not far from the village of Kolonia Klukowicze – but to no avail. The officers were pelted with stones by the refugees. An officer was injured in the process. In addition, the police arrested four suspected smugglers who were traveling with migrants in the border region. According to information, there are two Georgians, a Polish and a Syrian.
However, Poland has declared a state of emergency in the border region, so the information cannot be independently verified. Journalists and helpers are not allowed in. This also applies to the border area on the Belarusian side. For several days, thousands of migrants have been waiting in makeshift camps in the forest on the Belarusian border. On Saturday yesterday it became known that a Polish soldier was accidentally killed by a gun shot from a comrade on the border with Belarus. The tense situation is also causing discussions in politics. The Belarusian ruler Alexander Lukashenko is accused of bringing refugees from crisis regions to the EU’s external border in an organized manner.
