Estonia steps up surveillance along border with Russia

Estonia is planning to cover a 136-kilometer (84-mile) stretch of land along its border with Russia with state-of-art technology to combat illegal border-crossing and illicit traffic, government officials said Friday. The Border Police said the surveillance, including sensors, cameras and radars, would beef up security at the border of the European Union member. Part of the stretch would include fences, possibly with barbed wire, Interior Ministry spokesman Tex Vertmann said. Some 80 kilometers of land had already been cleared, and buoys will be installed to mark the border on rivers and lakes.
