No migrants were allowed into the country on humanitarian grounds on Thursday.

The SBGS said border guards and troops assisting them had not used their service guns, special measures or physical coercion over the past 24 hours.

Reinforced controls remain in place on the Lithuanian side of the border.

Some 87 irregular migrants were denied entry on Wednesday, 96 on Tuesday, 11 on Monday, 35 on Sunday, 31 on Saturday, and 111 last Friday.

Overall, 5,623 attempts at crossing the border in prohibited places have been prevented since early August, when the Lithuanian government allowed border guards to turn such migrants back to Belarus.

Over 4,200 irregular migrants have crossed into Lithuania from Belarus illegally so far this year.
