      Police said they seized about 10 tonnes of marijuana in the operation
      Federal police moved in on the latest tunnel, which was 10m (33ft) deep, after weeks of investigations and "without firing a single shot, surprising the suspected drug smugglers," the National Security Commission said.
      Police described a sophisticated tunnel, which was lit, ventilated and built with metal beams to prevent collapse.Officials have not yet confirmed which gang was operating the tunnel, but officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity told Reuters news agency that it was built by Guzman's Sinaloa Cartel, which operates in the region.Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman escaped from a maximum security jail through a 1.5km-long (1 mile) tunnel in July and remains on the run.Another tunnel was discovered at the start of August also in Tijuana, though it was incomplete and came short of crossing the border with the US.
