A man yells for help as Palestinians try to extinguish an accidental fire that swept over a smuggling tunnel in the southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah on the border with Egypt on April 8, 2011. Tunnels under the town of Rafah are used to transfer all kinds of goods from Egypt into the densely populated Palestinian enclave, even cattle and dismantled vehicles.
