Italy agitation on Brenner 'incomprehensible - Vienna (2)

Controls announced some time ago - interior minister

(ANSA) - Berlin, April 12 - Austrian Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner on Tuesday said Italian agitation at Vienna starting work on a border fence at the Brenner Pass was "incomprehensible", according to the APA news agency.
    Mikl-Leitner said Austria was "now punctually putting into practice what was announced weeks ago and put on the table in a clear way last week in Rome". Austria is building a 250-metre fence at road links with Italy in view of an expected flow of migrants and refugees across the Mediterranean into Italy.
