Egypt fails to block Gaza tunnels

Smuggling into Gaza continues despite Egypt's construction of a steel wall.

| Politics, Middle East, Egypt

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

It is an ongoing construction project, but it appears to have failed.

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.
