WARSAW (Sputnik) - The situation in the guarded center for migrants in Poland's Wedrzyn, where a riot erupted on Thursday, has stabilized, police said.
According to Polish media, several hundred migrants took to the site in front of the building and damaged some of the equipment. They also broke windows in the building, shouting "freedom" and chanting that the purpose of their arrival in Europe is Germany.
"After an attempt to break the fence in the guarded center in Wedrzyn, where there are more than 600 migrants, the situation has stabilized," police said in a statement on late Thursday.
Police said that no migrant had managed to escape from the detention center. Police have sent more than 500 officers to support the border guard at the site.
The center in Wedrzyn shelters 604 undocumented migrants, all of them are men, with 358 being Iraqi citizens.
Poland is currently facing an influx of migrants from the Middle East, who arrive there from the territory of neighboring Belarus.
