Egyptian police destroy 3 tunnels at Gaza border

Police destroyed on Wednesday three tunnels at the border between Egypt and Gaza, a security source told Al-Masry Al-Youm on Wednesday.

Police filled two of the tunnels with sand and rock and blasted the other, as it was far from people's homes.

Authorities coordinated with Gaza's government to make sure there weren't smugglers at the tunnels, which were discovered last week, the source said.

Police launched security campaigns at the tunnels following an explosion at an Arish gas station Tuesday, fearing that the perpetrators would escape through the tunnels to Gaza.
