WARSAW, March 6 A mission of observers from the
Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) has
been stopped from entering Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula by
unidentified men in military fatigues, Poland's defence minister
"The mission has been detained, they cannot go further. They
landed in Odessa and they were travelling by car from Odessa
towards the Crimean Peninsula, but they were detained by
unidentified men in fatigues," the defence minister, Tomasz
Siemoniak, told reporters.
He said it was possible the observers would be allowed to
head back the way they came, but they could not go forward into
Crimea. Two Polish military officers are among the OSCE mission.
