To prevent asylum seekers from entering the country, Poland has started to build a wall along its frontier with Belarus. This wall cuts through a protected forest and UNESCO world heritage site.
The 5.5-metre-high wall will run along 186 kilometres (115 miles) of the border, which is almost half the length of the border shared by the two countries. It will cost €353m (£293m) and will get completed in June. It will also be equipped with thermal cameras and motion detectors, as per the Polish border guard.
Let’s witness some border walls, which have made headlines recently.
