Poland's security council to meet after missile strike

- Poland's security council (BBN) said on Wednesday it will meet again at 1100 GMT amid concerns the Ukraine conflict could spill into countries after Tuesday's missile strike that killed two people.

"The BBN is currently analysing the arrangements made so far with commanders, service chiefs and allies," BBN head Jacek Siewiera said in a post on Twitter.

The Polish security council had first met on Tuesday following of the strike.

NATO member Poland's president early on Wednesday said the country had concrete evidence showing who fired the missile, which struck a Polish grain facility some 6 km (4 miles) from the Ukrainian border.

U.S. President Joe Biden said the missile was probably fired from Russia.

According to U.S. officials, initial findings suggested that the missile that hit Poland was fired by Ukrainian forces at an incoming Russian missile, the Associated Press said.
