WARSAW, Nov 26 — A group of migrants started a riot in a detention centre in Western Poland yesterday, demanding better conditions or a transfer to Germany or Iraq, Deputy Interior Minister Maciej Wasik said today.

Thousands of migrants are stranded on the European Union’s eastern frontier, in what the EU says is a crisis Minsk engineered by distributing Belarussian visas in the Middle East, flying them in and pushing across the border, an accusation Belarus denies.

Poland has been pushing back those trying to cross from Belarus and some who have made it through are kept in detention centres such as the one in Wedrzyn where they await a decision on whether they will be allowed to stay in Poland.

“Yesterday there was what I think it should be called a rebellion. A group of over 100 migrants began demolishing the buildings in which they live, breaking windows, tearing out bars, destroying … equipment, stools, bedding, beds, demanding either freedom or better conditions, a transition to Germany or deportation to Iraq,” Wasik told public radio.

Wasik said about 600 people were in the centre and many joined the group, but the situation was quickly put under control by the police and border guards.

Stanislaw Zaryn, a spokesperson for Poland’s special services, said in a separate radio interview that most of the men were from Iraq and wanted to head to Western Europe, mostly Germany.

Poland’s Border Guard said today 217 people tried to cross Poland’s border illegally from Belarus on Thursday. — Reuters
