Polish riot police on the country’s border with Belarus have fired water cannon and teargas at people forcibly attempting to cross into the European Union. Dozens of men threw rocks and approached a fence near the border crossing at the Polish town of Kuźnica. The clashes come a day after EU governments approved sanctions against the Belarusian leader, Alexander Lukashenko, for allegedly engineering the crisis by allowing thousands of asylum-seekers from the Middle East to travel through Belarus to the border with Poland Subscribe to Guardian News on YouTube ► http://bit.ly/guardianwiressub Polish police fire teargas at people trying to cross from Belarus ► https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/nov/16/polish-belarus-border-police-teargas-please The Guardian publishes independent journalism, made possible by supporters.
