MEXICO CITY (AFP) - Mexican authorities in the border city of Tijuana found a tunnel designed to smuggle people without documentation into the United States, the government said on Thursday.

Three suspected people-traffickers were arrested, a statement from the National Migration Institute said.

It gave no details on the size of the secret underground passage.

Police acted on an anonymous tip about a possible kidnapping of migrants held in a residential area of Tijuana, which borders California.
