    Summary of today’s events on the Polish-Belarusian border

    The rain of stones thrown by angry migrants was met with water jets from the Polish side.  During clashes the Polish Police broadcast an audio message in English warning migrants that force could be used against them. Migrants threw bottles and wooden logs at Polish soldiers and used sticks to try to break through the fence.


    The Border Guard gave out information about the expulsion of 29 foreigners. They’ll be denied entry to the European Union Schengen area for three years.


    Polish media reported that the border is guarded now by as many as 20 thousand Border Guard officers, police and troops. After the violent events Belarussian authorities made migrants walk to a nearby forest where they once again pitched their tents. However, some lucky ones were given shelter in a giant warehouse at a nearby logistic center.
