Ten smuggling tunnels on the border of Gaza were found and destroyed by Egyptian security forces on Sunday, Palestinian news agency Ma'an quoted an Egyptian security official as saying.

The tunnels, located in the city of Rafah, were used to smuggle a steady flow of food, building materials and weaponry since Gaza was blockaded in 2006.

Egyptian officials report that since last September more than 90 percent of the smuggling tunnels between Gaza and Egypt have been demolished.
