Missile impact in Poland: picture shows chaos among G20 politicians

1/5

It’s early morning in Bali as heads of state from around the world meet in Bali for talks.

It’s 3:40 p.m. when a Russian-made rocket falls in the Polish town of Przewodów – eight kilometers from the border with Ukraine – killing two people – and the world holds its breath.

It is three in the morning in Bali when the G20 heads of state are informed of the incident. Jens Plötner, foreign policy advisor to Chancellor Olaf Scholz, wakes up his boss at the Melia Bali hotel. A frenzy erupts, information is gathered. Four hours later, Scholz calls Polish President Andrzej Duda.
