Egypt finds 4 tunnels

Jan. 20, 2011 9:49 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 20, 2011 10:54 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Egypt took over four tunnels Thursday on the border with Gaza and thwarted the transfer of metal and food.

Authorities found large amounts of metal, used in building, and food, sources said.

Authorities also found two tunnels. They were placed under tight guard to be destroyed.

Security sources said the total number of tunnels seized since the beginning of 2011 was around 20 used for smuggling building materials needed for Palestinian markets.

Egypt seized 600 tunnels last year, officials said, 20 of them used for cars.
