Gaza tunnel collapse: 2nd body found

Gaza City, Palestine —A second Gazan was found dead Sunday after the collapse of a tunnel on the Egypt border, the interior ministry in the Hamas-run enclave said.
On Thursday, rescue services said seven men had been trapped in the collapse. Five were rescued, but on Sunday the ministry said they had retrieved the body of Mohammed Abbas of Rafah, after announcing the death of a man named as Fadi Abu Dan.
A local civil defence official described the underground passage from the southern Gaza town of Rafah into neighbouring Egypt as a “trade tunnel”.—APP
