At Belarus's Stalin Line museum visitors can watch reenactments of World War Two battles, fire Soviet-era weapons and even pose for photographs next to a wreath-decked monument to Josef Stalin himself. The open air complex 30 km (19 miles) outside Minsk was built to mark the 60th anniversary of the end of the war and showcases some of the fortifications built to protect the Soviet Union's Western flank - concrete bunkers and gun emplacements nicknamed 'Stalin's Line.'

In September 2005, hundreds of African migrants stormed the barbed wire fences in the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla in Morocco, seeking to make their way into Europe. Five died and many were severely injured. Today, the flow of migrants trying to climb over what has become a towering fence in Melilla has slowed to a trickle. A decade of fortifications by Spanish authorities aimed at raising and strengthening the fence - plus legal changes to facilitate their return - have led to a dramatic change.

Developer Robin von Hardenberg holds a tablet computer that runs his Timetraveler augmented reality app at Bernauer Street in Berlin, September 26, 2014. The app superimposes historic footage of scenes that unfolded when the Berlin Wall was erected in 1961 onto today's location when pointing the tablet at the specific spot. Berlin marks this year the 25th anniversary of the building of border fortification that divided the east and the west of the city.

German artist Ben Wagin holds model of a segment of the Berlin Wall to present his planned installation "Warum Mauer Darum" (Why Wall Therefore) at the site where the original border fortification stood behind the Reichstag building in Berlin August 7, 2014.

South Korean soldiers walk past a barbed wire fortification on a beach on the island of Baengnyeong, which lies on the South Korean side of the Northern Limit Line (NLL) in the Yellow Sea April 14, 2014. Baengnyeong, which is closer to Pyongyang than Seoul, is an isolated and heavily militarized island whose residents live in constant fear of possible clashes between two armies. The beaches of Baengnyeong are often walled with barbed wire fences straddling the sand dunes with intermittent holes for machine gun positions. The Northern Limit Line, a disputed maritime border that wraps itself round a part of the North's coastline, has been the scene of frequent clashes between South and North Korea. The line was drawn up at the end of the 1950-53 Korean War and North Korea does not recognize it. The two sides are still technically at war as the conflict ended in a mere truce, not a treaty.

Lebanese army soldiers dismantle a fortification used by Sunni gunmen as they are deployed as part of a security plan for the city for a second day in the Sunni Muslim Bab al-Tebbaneh neighbourhood in Tripoli, northern Lebanon April 2, 2014. Lebanese security forces set up checkpoints and patrols in the northern city of Tripoli, raided homes and arrested more than 20 people in a push to control sectarian violence fuelled by the war in Syria. At least 27 people have been killed over the past three weeks in Tripoli in clashes between Sunni Muslims and members of the Alawite sect, an off-shoot of Shi'ite Islam.

A home-grown marijuana plant is seen at an undisclosed location in Israel January 28, 2014. With a rise of Islamist militant violence in Egypt's Sinai desert, Israel in 2011 began accelerating fortification of its porous southern border along Sinai with a five-metre (16-foot)-high fence, state-of-the art surveillance and special military forces, delivering a severe blow to drug smugglers.
