Thousands of migrants have been waiting on the Polish-Belarusian border for days. Now some of them have broken through the barriers. There were several arrests.

According to the Polish police, a group of around 50 migrants broke the barrier on the border with Belarus and got to Poland. The incident occurred on Saturday evening near the village of Dubicze Cerkiewne, a police spokesman said.

The officers arrested 22 Iraqis. According to the police, another larger group tried to cross the border not far from the village of Kolonia Klukowicze – but to no avail. The refugees threw stones at the officers, and one officer was slightly injured.

The police also arrested four suspected smugglers in the border region who were traveling with refugees. According to the information, these are two Georgians, a Polish and a Syrian. The information cannot be independently verified as Poland has declared a state of emergency in the border region. Journalists and helpers are not allowed in. This also applies to the border area on the Belarusian side.

In temperatures around freezing point, thousands of migrants have been waiting for several days on the Belarusian border in makeshift camps in the forest. The Belarusian ruler Alexander Lukashenko is accused of bringing refugees from crisis regions to the EU’s external border in an organized manner.
