Egyptian security seize 10 tunnels, smugglers

March 31, 2010 5:37 A.M. (Updated: April 1, 2010 4:29 A.M.)
Al-Arish – Ma'an – Egyptian security sources said officers took control of 10 smuggling tunnels and two suspected weapons traders on Wednesday, with the help of 12 children detained the day before.

The tunnels, eight of which emerged in the Salah Ad-Din area of Rafah, were located with the information provided by 12 boys detained on Tuesday. At the time, police said the boys were attempting to escape harsh living conditions in Gaza.

While no weapons were confiscated, police said a warehouse and a large truck used to smuggle goods into Gaza were seized, along with 12 fuel tanks set for transport into the besieged coastal enclave.
