Turkey builds wall on Iranian border to stop influx of refugees from Afghanistan

Turkey is building a wall along its border with Iran to prevent a new refugee flow, mainly from Afghanistan as the Taliban take over the country. For now, a 5 km section of the 3 metre-high wall is under construction, and Turkey is aiming to build a 295 km-long wall on its Iranian border, beefed up by barbed wires and trenches. Turkey, which is already home to 3.7 million Syrians who fled the war, fears another influx of refugees from Afghanistan.
