Belarus tightens border security with Poland after alleged terrorist killed in shootout

Belarus has stepped up security along its border with Poland after security forces killed a foreigner in the region who allegedly was planning a terrorist attack, the Belarusian human rights group Viasna said Monday.

The Belarusian KGB security agency said the alleged terrorist was killed in a shootout on Sunday in the city of Grodno, just east of the Polish border. It did not identify the suspect’s nationality or give other details, but said its officers along with police and border guards were conducting “special operations” in the city on Monday.

Viasna released what it said was a video of the Sunday incident in which dozens of officers could be seen storming the entrance of a five-story apartment building. Sappers and explosives-seeking dogs were called to the residence of the regional governor, Viasna said.

Border guards were intensely inspecting vehicles and luggage and scrolling through mobile telephones at the Kazlovichy border crossing with Poland, Viasna said.

Belarusian authorities have conducted large-scale raids and arrests since the Feb. 26 drone attack on a Russian A-50 military plane at an airfield near Minsk. According to Viasna, more than 100 people have already been detained during the raids in Belarus.

Belarus hosts Russian soldiers and equipment, some of which have been deployed in the war in Ukraine.
