Polish PM: nothing to fear over base

Poland's prime minister sought to assure worried residents and authorities near the site of a planned US missile defense base on Friday, insisting the installation would increase their security. Speaking to reporters during a visit to a neglected former Polish air base in this village near the Baltic Sea - 180 kilometers from Russia's western frontier - Donald Tusk said residents have nothing to fear. "In case of war, Redzikowo and Slupsk will be more secure than other places, and not less secure," Tusk said.
