Pakistan building border fence with Afghanistan: officials

Pakistan building border fence with Afghanistan: officialsPakistan has begun building a fence along its border with Afghanistan to curtail the movement of militants, its army said, in a move criticised by its eastern neighbour for dividing communities. The two nations are divided by the “Durand Line”, a 2,400-kilometre (1,500-mile) frontier drawn by the British in 1896 and disputed by Kabul, which does not officially recognise it as an international border. Last year, Pakistan completed an 1,100 kilometre (700 mile) trench along the southern half of the border.
