Fences! Checkpoints! Making life difficult for Arabs! Call the UN!

Oh, sorry, it is only Egypt doing these things. They're allowed to defend themselves against terror from other Arabs.

Never mind.
Egypt has started to build a security fence around the Red Sea resort of Sharm al-Sheikh to try to stop attacks on the town, security officials say.

The officials said the fence would stretch for 20km (12 miles) and force vehicles wanting to enter the town to pass through one of four checkpoints.

More than 60 people were killed in July when suicide bombers launched attacks outside two hotels and a market.

A town resident told Reuters that one portion would cut off a nearby Bedouin settlement where many workers live.
