Egypt has built an underground metal wall to stop the smuggling of weapons and goods through tunnels into Gaza.

The tunnels are still operating – and that is because smugglers have found a way to break through the barriers.

Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston reports from Rafah, on the border between Gaza and Egypt.
