AP PHOTOS: Gaza tunnels idle amid Egypt crackdown
In this Monday, Sept. 30, 2013 photo, a Palestinian worker smokes a cigarette inside a smuggling tunnel along the border with Egypt in Rafah, southern Gaza Strip. Gaza's tunnel smugglers along the border with Egypt are mostly idle these days. Some rest on cots in the dank underground pathways, stretching out for a smoke. Others pass the time cleaning the small carts on wheels that are normally pulled through the tunnels carrying cement or consumer goods from Egypt. Since the summer, Egypt's military has tried to destroy or seal off most of the smuggling tunnels under the Gaza-Egypt border, a consequence of the heightened tensions between Cairo and the Hamas government in Gaza.
