U.S. authorities unearth smuggling tunnel under B.C. border

SEATTLE (AP) - U.S. government agents have shut down a drug-smuggling tunnel built under the Canadian border between Langley, B.C., and Lynden, Wash., a government source said Wednesday.
Authorities had been monitoring construction of the tunnel for eight months and sealed it Wednesday, shortly after it opened, making three to five arrests in the process, said the source, a government employee who had been briefed by local law-enforcement officials.
The exact length of the tunnel was not known. It ran from a building on the Canadian side to a house on the U.S. side, 90 metres from the border, the source said.
