Tunnel collapse!

From JPost:
An Egyptian security official says a tunnel used for smuggling between Egypt and Gaza has collapsed and killed at least one Palestinian.

The official says Sunday's collapse occurred when the tunnel's fragile sand ceiling fell under its own weight. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media.

He says Palestinian rescue workers are trying to extract the Palestinian man's body from the Gaza side of the border where he entered the tunnel.

The 2008 PalArab self-death count is now at 52.
