The soldiers found the body of the man, a backpack and a Nigerian passport in a forest near Olchowka yesterday (Tuesday), a police spokesperson told the Polish Press Agency (PAP).

The body was found about nine kilometers from the border, according to the report.

It was not yet clear who the man was and whether he was the holder of the passport.
