A worker was killed Monday when a smuggling tunnel under the Gaza-Egypt border collapsed, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported.

Medics said 22-year-old Sami Ahmad An-Nadi, from Khan Younis, was trapped in the tunnel.

According to Gaza medical services spokesman Adham Abu Salmiya, Nadi's body was taken to the Abu Yousif An-Najjar Hospital in Rafah, near to where the incident occurred. He was also quoted as saying that over 160 workers have been killed in similar accidents since February 2006.
