WARSAW (Poland): Poland's prime minister is citing the attack in Manchester to reinforce her government's opposition to a European Union plan to share migrants.

Beata Szydlo spoke on Wednesday ahead of a parliament vote in which the opposition sought in vain to oust Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz.

She praised Macierewicz, saying he wants a strong army capable of opposing threats that include terrorism.

Citing security reasons, her government is rejecting EU pressure for Poland to take in a number of migrants.

She said Poland "will not participate in the Brussels elites' folly."

Concerning the attack in which a Polish couple died, she asked: "Where are you headed, Europe? Rise from your knees and from your lethargy, or you will be crying over your children every day."
