The foreign police has launched a special operation to try to prevent a large group of refugees from crossing the country illegally. Late this week the police was alerted to the fact that some 3,000 Chechens were trying to cross Poland and the Czech Republic illegally on their way to a better life in Western Europe. Officers have been out in force doing routine checks on trains, busses and cars. It is the first large-scale operation of this kind since the Czech Republic joined the Schengen border-free zone on December 21.
