On Tuesday, a missile killed two people at Przewodów, a Polish village near the border with Ukraine.

Since February, there have been military attacks between Russia and Ukraine after the former invaded the latter’s country.

The explosion at the grain facility near the Ukrainian border has sparked concerns about possible World War III.

Owing to the incident, Poland’s military was placed on high alert as North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) ambassadors called for an emergency meeting on Wednesday morning.

However, the Russian defence ministry, in a statement on Tuesday, denied reports that the country is responsible for the attack, saying the claim is a “deliberate provocation aimed at escalating the situation”.

“No strikes on targets near the Ukrainian-Polish state border were made by Russian means of destruction,” the statement said.

Meanwhile, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky, in a tweet on Tuesday, blamed Russia for the attack, saying the world must be fully protected against “terrorist Russia”.

On Wednesday, Biden was quoted to have told NATO and G7 Leaders at the G20 Summit in Bali that preliminary information “contests” the earlier reports that Russia is responsible for the attack on Poland.

“There is preliminary information that contests that. I don’t want to say that until we completely investigate it, but it is unlikely in the lines of the trajectory that it was fired from Russia,” Reuters quoted Biden.

After the meeting, western leaders at the Bali summit, in a statement, condemned what they described as “barbaric missile attacks that Russia perpetrated on Ukrainian cities and civilian infrastructure”.

The western leaders promised to offer assistance to Poland amid the ongoing investigation to determine the source of the attack.

“We discussed the explosion that took place in the eastern part of Poland near the border with Ukraine.

Melody LaPointe, 47, of Baytown; Tarah Tinney, 33, of Liberty; and Augusta Costlow, 27, of Liberty, have been charged with four counts of abandoning or endangering a child.

As per court documents, the incident took place at Liberty Independent School District, Texas, in 2021, when the workers placed a pupil in isolation and deprived them of food until they started eating their feces, The Mirror reported.

The teacher and school assistants had placed a pupil in isolation and deprived them of food until they started eating their faeces and urine, according to court documents.

A school spokesperson said the two teaching assistants were placed on administrative leave whilst police investigated the allegations.

However, LaPointe had recently been working as a teacher for Bonnie P. Hopper Primary School in Houston, Texas – despite being under investigation.

The primary school sent parents an email on November 17 informing them the teacher had been arrested.

It said: “In an effort of full transparency, we want to inform our families of an incident that occurred yesterday during dismissal.

“A teacher at Bonnie P. Hopper Primary School was arrested yesterday by Liberty County constables.

“The cause for arrest occurred in Liberty County and is not affiliated with Goose Creek CISD in any way.

“The teacher is currently placed on administrative leave with pay, pending the outcome of an investigation, after which the District will take appropriate disciplinary action.

“As this is a pending legal matter, Goose Creek CISD will allow the legal process to proceed and refrain from further comment.

“We want to ensure our families that the safety and security of your children is our 1 concern. We thank you for your continuous support of our campus and our district.”

The email led to furious parents questioning why their children were allowed to be taught by LaPointe given an investigation into her conduct at her former school was taking place.

Amanda Henry, who has a six-year-old daughter at the school, told ABC 13 : “I am scared to send my daughter to school.

“You are supposed to send them there to be protected, and they hire this lady who apparently they did not do an extensive background check on and hurt a child, left this child locked up in a room, having to eat his own faeces and drink his own urine. It’s disturbing.”

The school tried to reassure parents but failed to address why she was allowed to teach whilst under investigation.

A spokesperson for Goose Creek said: “We immediately reported the matter to law enforcement and CPS, removed the educators who continued to work for us from the classroom, and conducted a comprehensive investigation.

“Based upon our investigation, we reported the educators to the State Board for Educator Certification and shared our results with law enforcement officials.”

According to LaPointe’s education certificate, she had an investigatory flag on her file, the Texas Education Agency said.
