Belarus migrant crisis: British army engineers to help at Polish border

BBC News says About 150 British army Royal Engineers will be sent to help reinforce Poland’s border with Belarus, the defence secretary has said.

The border is seen as an entry point to the EU, and there have been tensions in recent weeks with Belarus being accused of pushing migrants towards it.

Ben Wallace said a small reconnaissance team of engineers had already been to the area to assess the situation.

They would not be combat troops but “guys with diggers”, he added.

Belarus’s long-time authoritarian leader, Alexander Lukashenko, denies facilitating the arrival of migrants and sending them towards the border with Poland in revenge for EU sanctions imposed in June.
