Egypt found new arms-smuggling tunnels linking it with the Gaza Strip.

Three Palestinians found inside one of the smuggling tunnels connecting Rafah in Egypt with Rafah in Gaza were arrested when the tunnels were discovered Tuesday.

A tunnel uncovered Monday was found to contain a bomb, bullets and drugs.

Egypt claims smuggling through the tunnels has decreased since Hamas took over Gaza, Reuters reported.
