The Mex­i­can army found a new tun­nel dug by drug smug­glers un­der the bor­der with the United States. Army of­fi­cials said it found the tun­nel un­der con­struc­tion in a water-pu­rifi­ca­tion plant in Te­cate, across the bor­der from a mostly ru­ral area of South­ern Cal­i­for­nia. Sol­diers ar­rested eight peo­ple dur­ing the op­er­a­tion and con­fis­cated a small amount of mar­i­juana. The tun­nel was about five feet in di­am­e­ter and 135 yards long, with a con­crete floor, ven­ti­la­tion and elec­tric light­ing.
