Tensions rise as Belarus escorts migrants towards Polish border – video

Polish authorities have accused Belarus of trying to spark a major confrontation as footage showed hundreds of migrants walking towards the Polish border. Belarusian State Border Committee shared drone footage of Polish police in riot gear guarding the Polish border as migrants were gathering on the Belarusian side, behind barbed wire. The US has called on the government of Belarus to immediately halt its campaign of orchestrating and coercing irregular migration flows across its borders.
