Palestinian security officials said two people died and four were missing following the collapse of a smuggling tunnel under the Gaza-Egypt border on Saturday. The collapse's cause remains unknown. Palestinians use such tunnels to bring food, clothing, fuel and even livestock into the impoverished Gaza Strip. Israel has attacked the tunnels to try to stop Hamas from smuggling in weapons. Over 20 people have died in tunnel-related accidents this year.
