Israeli forces have destroyed a tunnel near Gaza's Karni crossing after yesterday's suicide bombing in the Red Sea resort of Eilat.

The Israelis say they believe Palestinian militants were planning to use the tunnel to carry out further attacks inside Israel. The operation is the first in Gaza since a truce was announced between Palestinian militant groups and Israel in late November. The blowing up of the tunnel comes a day after a suicide bomber killed three people in a bakery in Eilat.

The attack came just days before Middle East negotiators were due to hold talks in Washington to try to revive peace efforts. A security camera in a fast food restuarant next door to the bakery captured the exact moment of the blast.
