Saakashvili: Ukraine deports ex-Georgia president to Poland

Former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili has been deported to Poland, Ukraine's border service says.

It says the 50-year-old was in Ukraine illegally and therefore "was returned to the country from where he arrived".

But his lawyer said the deportation was a "kidnapping".
