German authorities register 4,889 migrants who tried to enter the country illegally through Poland and Belarus during October. The DPA reported with reference to the German police.
Police check the documents of people who came from Poland to Germany on the German-Polish border in the city of Frankfurt am Main in eastern Germany on Thursday, October 28, 2021.
The number of registered illegal border crossings in Germany more than doubled in October compared to September, the local authorities said.
Since the beginning of the year, there have been 7,300 unauthorized attempts to cross the German border through the so-called “Belarusian” route.
The number of migrants coming to Germany from Poland has been increasing since August. Police said they did not see any signs of easing at the moment.
A dead refugee was found near the German-Polish border on Friday, police in Görlitz said. He was an Iraqi who was tried to be resuscitated, but his life could no longer be saved. Further information was not immediately known.
Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said in May that his government would no longer prevent migrants from entering the EU in response to tougher Western sanctions imposed on Belarus for violently suppressing protests following the disputed presidential election.
Since then, the number of migrants from Iraq, Syria, Yemen and other troubled regions trying to enter the European Union illegally through Belarus has increased significantly. Neighboring countries – Poland, Lithuania and Latvia – have borne the brunt of this influx.
