Greece Plans to Build Controversial Border Wall

The Greek government says it plans to build a fence along part of its border with Turkey to try to stop illegal immigrants from crossing into the country.

Greek authorities say more than 100,000 illegal immigrants arrived in the country last year. Most crossed the Evros River that separates Greece and Turkey, and the European Union from the outside world.

The Greek government says those numbers can no longer be tolerated and has announced plans to construct an eight-mile long fence along the most vulnerable part of the border.

Southern Sudan Chooses: Unity or Secession?

Sunday's referendum in southern Sudan gives voters a choice between staying united with the rest of Sudan or becoming an independent country.

The poll was agreed to in the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement that ended Sudan's 21-year north-south civil war.

Voters entering polling booths will see two symbols. One shows two hands clasped together, symbolizing unity. The other shows the single palm of a hand, symbolizing separation.

Most analysts predict southerners will choose independence. The new country would be Africa's first since Eritrea won independence in 1993.

African Leaders Seek Resolution to Ivory Coast Political Crisis

African leaders are in Abidjan for more talks with Ivory Coast's rival presidents. The country's political crisis has sent thousands of refugees into Liberia.

The African Union and the Economic Community of West African States have recognized former prime minister Alassane Ouattara as the newly-elected president of Ivory Coast.

FIREARMS SAFETY MESSAGE CENSORED!
In Phoenix, efforts to promote the safe exercise of Second Amendment rights have run into censorship at the hands of the local government. Alan Korwin at the Page Nine blog, www.GunLaws.com, reports that fifty billboards at bus stops, saying “Guns Save Lives, Arizona Says: Train Your Kids, www.TrainMeAZ.com” were ordered torn down as a resolution was being negotiated.

Promoting the safe and legal exercise of the rights that have been guaranteed by the Second Amendment is not something worthy of censorship.
