Gaza teen dies in Rafah smuggling tunnel

Feb. 23, 2013 10:08 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 25, 2013 11:48 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A teenager died on Saturday while working in a smuggling tunnel under the Gaza-Egypt border, medics said.

Muhammad Khalil Irbayi, 18, was electrocuted in a tunnel in Rafah, south Gaza, medics said.

Six Palestinians died in January in tunnel implosions, raising the death toll amongst workers to 233 since 2007, according to Gazan human rights groups, including an estimated 20 who died in various Israeli air attacks on the border lands.

Israel imposed its blockade for what it called security reasons in 2007. The United Nations has appealed for it to be lifted.
