GAZA CITY, Feb 11: Two Palestinians including a Hamas policeman suffocated to death from gas in a cross-border tunnel under Gaza's frontier with Egypt, the enclave's interior ministry said on Monday.
Interior ministry spokesman Iyad al-Bozum said 39-year-old major Abdelhamid al-Akar and Sabhy Abu Qarushayn, 28, "suffocated due to the inhalation of toxic gases".
Civil defence crews, alerted on Sunday, retrieved the two bodies from the tunnel "after a great effort that lasted several hours", Bozum said in a statement.    -AFP
