14-year-old boy freezes to death on Polish-Belarusian border

A 14-year-old Kurdish boy is the latest casualty in the ongoing crisis in the border region between Belarus and Poland, where thousands of migrants and refugees are stuck in brutal conditions. The boy was reported to have frozen to death overnight on Wednesday.

The Belarusian officials have claimed they are treating the migrants in this camp well, providing care and water. But stories are emerging instead of widespread maltreatment, abuse and indeed violence. They also have a serious lack of water and are fighting to get more.
