Drug-smuggling tunnel - level 2

Drug-smuggling tunnel - level 2

07-08-2015 15:00

Mexican police discovered an unfinished drug-smuggling tunnel in Tijuana. It emerges in a building which is just two blocks from Mexico’s border with the USA.

This tunnel is the third found tunnel in the area since April when police discovered two other tunnels. Illegal tunnels are relatively common along the 322 kilometre-long Mexico-US border. In the last ten years, police found more than 75 tunnels.

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

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