Gaza tunnels resume smuggling


Tunnels linking Gaza to Egypt have resumed smuggling despite Israel's attempts to destroy them during its 22-day assault on the strip.

The Israelis say the tunnels are used to smuggle weapons in to militants from Hamas, but the Palestinians argue that Israel's tight control of their borders means the tunnels are the only way they can get enough fuel and basic goods to survive.
