Another Fence

Now this is interesting.

Saudi Arabia, one of the most vocal critics in the Arab world of Israel’s “security fence” in the West Bank, is quietly emulating the Israeli example by erecting a barrier along its porous border with Yemen.

The barrier is part of a plan to erect what will be an electronic surveillance system along the length of the kingdom’s frontiers – land, air and sea. The project, involving fencing and electronic detection equipment, has been in the planning stages for several years. It may cost up to $8.57bn (£4.58bn). Behind the plan is a deep-seated lack of trust in the Yemeni authorities’ ability to arrest infiltrators before they make it into Saudi territory.

I hope Israel’s lawyer at the International Court of Justice is taking notes.
