"The attack on a girl because of the colour of her skin deserves the strongest condemnation. We will do everything to make Poland safe for everyone," Morawiecki wrote on Twitter.

A girl of Turkish descent was attacked in Warsaw on Thursday. Media reported that the assailant shouted: "Poland for Poles."

Interior Minister Mariusz Błaszczak called the assault “a scandalous situation”.

Błaszczak said he had ordered Poland’s police chief to personally oversee a probe into the incident.

The girl is not believed to have been seriously injured.
