Man found dead in Gaza tunnel

Jan. 16, 2013 12:12 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 17, 2013 2:43 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The body of Bassam Khader was recovered from a tunnel under the Gaza-Egypt border on Wednesday, after an 8-day search, relatives said.

Khader, 42, was last seen working in a smuggling tunnel in Rafah which was thought to have collapsed during extreme weather conditions last week.

On Sunday, Ali al-Fadi, 20, died and three others were wounded when a tunnel partially caved in near Rafah, civil defense spokesman Muhammad al-Maathneh said.

An Egyptian official said this week that many of the tunnels under Gaza's border with Egypt have flooded or collapsed due to heavy rainfall.

The tunnel network developed as a vital source of goods under Israel's blockade of the coastal strip and Egyptian restrictions on the official Rafah crossing point.
