Polish police find the body of a Syrian citizen in the forests near the border with Belarus
The body of a Syrian was found in Poland near the border with Belarus, according to the Polish police on Twitter.
“Yesterday, in the forests near the border near Vulka Terekhovskaya, the corpse of a young man of Syrian nationality was found,” the message says.
“The measures carried out at the place where the body was found did not allow to unambiguously establish the cause of death,” the police said.
Since the beginning of the migration crisis, the bodies of at least five illegal migrants have already been found on Polish territory near the border with Belarus.
Several thousand migrants have accumulated on the border of Belarus and Poland in the past few weeks, hoping to get to the EU countries.
The Polish authorities have strengthened border security, pulled the military and thwarted attempts by illegal immigrants to enter the country, blaming Minsk for the migration crisis. All these accusations are denied by Belarus, claiming that Poland is forcibly expelling migrants.
