They’ve been dubbed “lower Gaza,” compared to the Underground, the Metro or the subway and depicted as a bone-chilling, strategic threat to Israel. Hamas’ web of tunnels is taking center stage in the relentless conflict between the militant group and Israel, with Israel’s ground offensive placing their destruction as a key objective.

While the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 last week riveted international attention on the Ukraine conflict, locals have been struggling for months with spiraling violence.

In this July 23, 2014, photo, President Barack Obama walks with senior adviser Valerie Jarrett as he leaves a fundraising event in Los Altos Hills, Calif. When Obama attended the fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, a party committee that must adhere to strict contribution limits, officials released the number of guests attending and how much they paid. For years Obama railed against the surge of unlimited spending flowing into American political campaigns, arguing that average voters were being shut out of a secretive system that lets special interests bankroll elections. Now as Obama enthusiastically raises money for Democratic super PACs, he’s embracing some of the same secretive elements of that system, drawing charges of hypocrisy from good-governance advocates who say the public deserves to know what Obama’s saying and whom he’s saying it to when donors pay for a few minutes with the president.(AP Photo)

In this July 8, 2014, the Lotte World Tower, center, under construction is seen near the Seokchon Lake in Seoul, South Korea. Plans for the super-high tower first surfaced in 1995 and it took another 15 years to get a green light after the Air Force objected to it as a risk to a nearby military airport used for VIP flights. Now it faces new doubts as South Korea reels from the Sewol ferry sinking in April that killed hundreds of teenagers. The disaster provoked a scathing reassessment of an ethos of economic progress first, safety last that was largely unquestioned over several decades as the country rapidly industrialized.

FILE - In this July 14, 2014, file photo, an Argentina soccer fan waves Argentina's national flag the morning after his team was defeated by Germany at the World Cup final, on Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Local media reports say tens of thousands of Argentine fans have remained in the country after the tournament ended. But the prospect of a large number of foreigners selling handicrafts, juggling at intersections for handouts or relying on government social services for poor Brazilians has officials worried.

This July 3, 2014 photo shows Jim Denny inspecting the growth of a field of hemp on his property in Brighton, Colo. Denny learned the hard way that he needed neighbors’ permission before growing hemp. He learned about marijuana’s non-intoxicating cousin at an event earlier this spring and decided to try the crop on a 75-by-100-foot plot in his yard. But Denny’s hemp plot ran afoul of his homeowners’ association, which ruled the hemp experiment unacceptable. (AP Photo/Ed Andrieski)
