Drug-smuggling tunnel - level 1

07-08-2015 15:00

This news is from Tijuana. Tijuana is a Mexican city. It is at the border with the USA. Some people build a tunnel there.

The tunnel leads to the USA. The tunnel is not finished. It is a drug-smuggling tunnel. Mexican police find the tunnel. In April, they found two more tunnels.

There are many tunnels from Mexico to the USA. The border is 322 kilometres long. From 2005 to 2015, police found 75 tunnels.

Difficult words: border (a line where one country ends and another country begins), smuggle (to move things illegally from one country to another country).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think about these tunnels in Mexico to the USA?
