Bulgaria's Fence To Stop Migrants On Turkey Border Nears Completion

Its defense minister said on Thursday that Bulgaria has largely completed the construction of a 21-mile barbed wire fence at the border with its southeastern neighbor Turkey as it tries to cope with asylum seekers. The EU's poorest country started to build the three-meter-high fence in January, following the example of Greece, which built a similar barrier in 2012 to cope with a soaring number of refugees, mainly from Syria. Defense Minister Angel Naidenov told reporters at the border, "This is a facility that prevents the illegal crossing of the border. The aim is to transfer such attempts to the border check points as it is done in every other country."
