Polish Truckers Protest




WARSAW, Poland -- Polish truckers blocked a border crossing with Ukraine for five hours Monday in protest over the treatment of four Poles arrested for alleged smuggling, PAP news agency reported.


It said they suspended the protest at the Medyka crossing near the city of Przemysl after the local provincial governor came to discuss the case with them, but planned to resume it next week at three border points if their demands were not met.


The four were held by Ukrainian security forces while unloading food they had allegedly brought into the country without paying duty, the Polish agency said.
