WARSAW/KYIV (Financial Times) -- Poland's government convened an emergency security meeting on Tuesday evening after two people were reportedly killed by a missile strike in the Polish countryside near Ukraine.

Polish media said the two died close to Przewodow, a village next to the border with Ukraine. Photographs posted on social media showed a damaged farm vehicle lying on its side next to a large crater. Local media said the casualties were farmworkers.
