Tunnel collapse! Plus other Gaza news

AP:
A Palestinian health official said two Palestinians have been killed Thursday in the collapse of a smuggling tunnel under the Gaza-Egypt border.

Health Ministry official Moawiya Hassanain said that five people were pulled out of the tunnel alive.

Local residents say the tunnel was used for smuggling drugs and fuel into Gaza.
Isn't it strange that while Hamas brags that it is still smuggling weapons and explosives into Gaza, every specific tunnel mentioned in the Western press is supposedly only for food or fuel?

The 2008 PalArab self-death count is now at 107. Some reports say that there are still missing people.

In other peaceful PalArab news, a charity building in Rafah was blown up by those ever-present "mysterious gunmen."

There are also reports that Egypt has presented Hamas with video evidence that it was Hamas gunmen, not desperate sick people, who stormed the Rafah border a few days ago.
