Mexico finds smuggling tunnel near US border

MEXICO CITY — Mexican authorities have discovered a sophisticated smuggling tunnel equipped with electricity and ventilation not far from the Nogales port of entry into Arizona, US and Mexican officials said Friday.

The Mexican Army said the tunnel was found Thursday after authorities received an anonymous call in the border city of Nogales in the state of Sonora, south of Arizona. US law enforcement officials confirmed the Mexican military found the football-field-long tunnel with elaborate electricity and ventilation systems.
