Belarus: The families desperate to enter the EU


The government says it’s deployed a “small team of UK armed forces personnel” to Poland’s border with Belarus, to assist in an unfolding humanitarian and political crisis there.

The EU has accused Belarus of flying in migrants, and encouraging them to use its territory to make their way to the EU.

Today, Turkey announced it will ban citizens of some countries from taking flights from its airports to Belarus.
