Fence to control migrants finished along Bulgarian-Turkish border

Bulgarian authorities have announced the completion of a 33-kilometre fence along the country’s border with Turkey.

Sofia has said the reason behind building the three-metre-high barrier was to control the increasing number of refugees, many from Syria, entering the country.

The fence has drawn criticism from the UN refugee agency for closing the door to asylum seekers.
