Egypt continues to destroy border tunnels using seawater

Palestinians who are using tunnels to smuggle goods between Egypt and the Gaza Strip said the Egyptian authorities have begun pumping large amounts of seawater through a giant pipe laid along the border in order to flood and destroy the tunnels without having to look for their exact locations.
Abu Mohamed, the Palestinian owner of a tunnel, said the owners are not able to pump the water out because there is too much of it. 
Abu Saed, another owner, said many tunnels have already collapsed.
