Iraq said Tuesday it is building a wall and trench around Baghdad in an effort to secure the city from terror attacks.

The Interior Ministry spokesman, Brig. Gen. Saad Maan, said work began this week on a 65-mile stretch of the wall and trench around the capital, the Associated Press reported. The wall will be 10-feet high and partially made up of concrete barriers, he said.
