Palestinians work outside a smuggling tunnel flooded by Egyptian forces in Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip February 19, 2013. Egypt's campaign to shut down smuggling tunnels running under its border into the Gaza Strip threatens to throw thousands of Palestinians out of work in the Hamas-run enclave. The Egyptian army has been destroying smuggling tunnels between the Gaza Strip and Sinai, said Palestinians who build them. The Egyptians have been flooding them, they said. Photo by Eyad Al Baba
