Four killed as Egypt blows up Gaza tunnel

Palestinian medics in the Gaza Strip Sept. 23 recovered the bodies of four Strip residents who were killed in an explosion in a tunnel at the Egyptian border. At least one was wounded and hospitalized in Rafah. The explosion took place in a tunnel in a-Brazil area in the southern part of the Gaza Strip. According to the Hamas-affiliated Palestinian Information Center, Egyptian security forces detonated the tunnel while five residents were in it. The forces likely did not know there was anyone in the tunnel, the report said. (IMEMC, Sept. 23)
