Algeria Plans Fence on Libyan Border

Libya Herald reports that Algeria is considering building an electric fence along its border with Libya because of concerns about the movement of terrorists and weapons.

Citing a source at the Algerian daily, El Mihwar, it said a top-level Algerian army security meeting last week called for the erection of a fence, with trenches, running from near Ghadames to the town of Djanet near the southwest Libyan border town of Ghat.

The Algerian Air Force has already been put on a state of alert along the border and told that any unauthorised entry of vehicles from Libya should be regarded as a hostile act and be attacked.
