Poland Says Migrants Detained in Attempt to Cross Border

Polish authorities said early on November 18 they had detained approximately 100 migrants who attempted to cross the border from Belarus overnight.

This footage was released by the Polish Ministry of National Defense. The ministry said Belarusians “forced” migrants to throw stones at Polish soldiers to distract them while others attempted to cross.

Belarus authorities had not responded to these claims at the time of writing. However, the Belarus State Border Committee has previously described Polish authorities as sharing “false information.” Credit: @MON_GOV_PL via Storyful
