Poland PM refuses to take in migrants after Brussels attacks

Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo is seen arriving to attend the second day of an European Union Summit held at the EU Council building in Brussels, on March 18, 2016Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo on Wednesday said Warsaw would not take in its share of migrants under an EU plan because of the jihadist attacks that killed 31 people in Brussels. Poland is the first EU member to take such a step after Tuesday’s bombings at the Brussels airport and metro, which also left 270 wounded — including three Poles — and were claimed by the Islamic State group. “After what happened in Brussels yesterday, it’s not possible right now to say that we’re OK with accepting any number of migrants at all,” Szydlo told private television Superstacja.
