Hungary widens fence on Serbian border

The fence which Hungary started to install last month on the border with Serbia, to cope with the migrant crisis, will be widened all along its 177 kilometres, a Hungarian official has said.

Such measures are deemed necessary, Janos Lazar, the aide of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said.

At the same time, there have been only few attempts at crashing the fence which has been erected so far, Lazar told a news conference in Budapest, Tanjug news agency reports.

Hungary initially planned to install a fence, including barbed wire, only at part of the border, complaining it cannot tolerate the wave of migrants from the Middle East and Africa.
