Norway's short but controversial fence on Russia's border
Norway is erecting a controversial steel fence along its border with Russia following a surge in migrant arrivals last year.
The fence has drawn criticism from refugees' rights groups and locals who fear that cross-border ties with Russia will be harmed.
But the government says the new fence is needed to tighten security at the northernmost road crossing into Europe's passport-free Schengen zone.
