Hungary starts building fence on border with Croatia

Hungary began building a fence on its border with Croatia overnight to stem a flow of migrants and has already deployed hundreds of soldiers and police on the border, Prime Minister Viktor Orban told public radio on Friday. He said a fast-solution fence will be finished on the critical 41-kilometre stretch of the border — where the two countries are not divided by a river — by the end of Friday. “We must implement the same measures as on the Serbian-Hungarian border,” Orban said, adding that at this point 600 soldiers had worked on the fence, and a further 500 will be deployed on Friday and 700 more over the weekend.
