Polish PM draws link between London attack and EU migrant policy
by Marcin Goclowski
Poland's prime minister drew a link on Thursday between an attack in London targeting the British parliament and the European Union's migrant policy, saying the assault vindicated Warsaw's refusal to take in refugees.
Five people, including the attacker, were killed and about 40 injured on Wednesday after a car plowed into pedestrians near the British parliament. Police believe the attack was "Islamist-related", but have given no details about the attacker, who they say was acting alone.
Poland's right-wing, eurosceptic government has refused to accept any of the 6,200 migrants allocated to it under the European Union's quota scheme that is designed to share the burden of taking in the large numbers of migrants and refugees who have come to Europe over the past two years.
