3 Palestinians disappear after Egyptian army destroys Gaza border tunnel

Three Palestinian workers were lost in a tunnel under Gaza’s southern border with Egypt when it was blown up by the Egyptian army, a Palestinian security source in the Gaza Strip said Monday. 
In a statement to Anadolu News Agency, the source said the workers were doing maintenance work inside the tunnel.
Egyptian authorities started to pump the tunnels with seawater a month ago in an attempt to destroy them and put an end to smuggling operations.
