Gaza Smugglers Using Google Earth

Google_earthThe Economist reports that the Palestinians found another use for Google Earth:

The smugglers are almost always private entrepreneurs. They first select a piece of land close to the border wall and then dig a large hole with a mechanical digger. They then enclose an area of dozens of square metres and start digging, filling the first hole with the earth from the tunnel. They can map the length and direction of the tunnel accurately using satellite pictures from Google Earth.

Google Earth ain't just for rocket squads targeting Israel.
