Mexicali – Army troops found a tunnel running between 30 meters and 50 meters (98 feet and 164 feet) that was used to move drugs and illegal immigrants under the U.S.-Mexican border.
The tunnel was built in Mexicali, the capital of Baja California, and is about three kilometers (1.8 miles) from a U.S. immigration control post.
The tunnel was constructed to look like a drainage pipe, 2nd Military Zone commander Gen. Gilberto Landeros Briseño said.
