Greece has announced plans to build a 12km (eight-mile) fence along part of its border with Turkey to prevent illegal immigrants from crossing.Public Order Minister Christos Papoutsis said more than 100,000 people had entered Greece illegally last year and Athens had a duty to act. Greece has long complained to Turkey about border security. But the European Commission said such fences were “short-term measures” which did not tackle the root of the problem. The proposed fence would cover a short section of the Greece-Turkey border in the Orestiada area of north-eastern Greece.
