Poland Begins Building Fence On Border With Belarus - Border Guard
The construction of the five-meter (16 feet) steel fence will cost around 1.
"This is the biggest investment in the history of the Border Guard," the statement said.
The decision to build a wall on the border with Belarus was made after thousands of middle Eastern migrants flocked to the border in an attempt to cross over to the EU. The fence will be equipped with night vision cameras and motion sensors to prevent illegal crossings. Special gates will be built to allow the unimpeded movement of wild animals through the border.
