Poland accuses Belarus of 'destroying' border fence

The video, posted on Twitter just after 0600GMT, does not confirm the location of the fence but alleges that Belarus was attempting to make it easier for migrants to cross into Poland.

"Belarusian services under cover of night destroy the fence to allow migrants to cross the border illegally," the accompanying caption read.

The European Union has accused Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko of orchestrating an influx of migrants to EU members Poland, Lithuania and Latvia to pressure the EU to back down over sanctions slapped on his government.

Belarus has repeatedly denied the accusation.
