EU blasts Hungary on immigrant wall

'We've taken down walls, should not put up new ones'

(ANSA) - Brussels, June 18 - The EU's commissioner on immigration spoke out Thursday against Hungary's proposal to build an anti-immigrant wall separating it from Serbia, announced Wednesday.
    "We have only recently taken down walls in Europe; we should not be putting them up," said Natasha Bertaud, spokeswoman for EU immigration commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos.
    The proposed wall would stand four metres high and run 175 kilometers along the length of the shared border between Hungary and Serbia.
