SLOVAKIA / UKRAINE : Cigarette Smuggling Tunnel Uncovered.


     It seems that Mexico is not the only nation with smuggling tunnels.
     Officials found a 700m tunnel...with its own train...under the border of Ukraine and Slovakia..along with 2.5 million cigarettes.
     The 6m deep tunnel ran from the Slovak village of Vysne...to a new Ukrainian house in Uzhorod.
     Police speculate that up to 50 million euros in taxes were evaded with the tunnel scheme.
     A Slovak property owner was arrested.
