Bulgaria may extend the fence at its border with Turkey to stop more refugees from Syria and Iraq entering illegally, a top Interior Ministry official said Wednesday, while the foreign minister warned of "terrorism imports" to the EU member state.The Balkan country is considering adding 130 km of barbed-wire fencing to an existing 33-km fence along the 240-km southeastern border which, the interior ministry's Chief Secretary Svetoslav Lazarov, said would save 2 million levs ($1.36 million) a month on policing the area.More than 10,000 refugees, mainly Syrians, entered Bulgaria illegally last year from Turkey and, in an attempt to limit the influx, authorities deployed over 1,000 police officers.
