Hungary will build a new, "more massive" fence on its southern borders to defend against a possible surge in the number of migrants, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said Friday, the Associated Press reports.
Orban, who earlier said migrants were "poison," said on state radio that there may soon be a "greater need for security" and the fortified barrier would be able to stop "several hundreds of thousands of people" at the same time if needed. He did not say when construction could start.
Orban said the surge could take place if, for example, Turkey allows the millions of refugees living there to leave for Western Europe.
