Man killed in Gaza tunnel collapse

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A man was killed on Saturday when a smuggling tunnel in Rafah collapsed, a Gaza medical official said.

Ashraf al-Qidra told Ma'an that Mousa Ghunaim, 26, was pronounced dead on arrival at a Gaza hospital after a tunnel collapsed while he was working.

In January, the Al-Mezan Center for Human Rights urged the Gaza government to implement better safety measures and assess the benefits of the tunnel network as a whole, saying 232 people had been killed in collapsing tunnels.

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