PA: Kids duped into drug smuggling
The Palestinian Authority admitted on Sunday that children were being used in the smuggling business along the border between Egypt and the Gaza Strip. PA policemen deployed along the border in the past 48 hours have arrested a number of children who were carrying drugs in schoolbags.

The head of the PA's anti-drug police unit in Rafah, said his men have seized more than one ton of drugs, as well as alcohol, that were smuggled from Egypt over the past few days. He said more than 70 Palestinian and Egyptian suspects have been arrested in connection with the smuggling of drugs.
