Romanian PM criticizes Hungary for fence plan

Romania's prime minister has criticized Hungary for planning to put up a wire fence along part of its border with Romania to slow the flow of migrants.

Victor Ponta said Tuesday on his Facebook page that "barbed wire, aggressive laws, prison and brutality will not resolve problems."

Ponta added on Antena 3 television that he was "horrified" to think about what to do "if Hungarian troops begin to shoot or kill children and women."

He said the fence plans show that Hungary "in the heart of Europe, has political decision makers which are no better than those in Syria, Libya or other countries that refugees flee from."
