Mexican federal police have found three suspected drug tunnels under construction in the city of Nogales near the Arizona border. Mexico's Public Security Department says two of the tunnels ran beneath the U.S.-Mexico border. One of those still had wood boards and the other was lined with cement.

Officials say the third was about 7 meters long and appeared to have no exit.

The department on Tuesday did not say when the tunnels were found.

Dozens of tunnels believed built by Mexican drug cartels have been found along the U.S.-Mexico border in recent years, many of them incomplete.
