Jews' Roman "escape route" found





Archaeologists in Jerusalem say they have found an underground drainage channel that was used by Jews to escape from the Romans in 70 AD.

The channel was buried under the rubble of the Second Temple, which was destroyed by Roman conquerors in the Siege of Jerusalem.

Scores of people are thought to have sheltered and lived in the tunnel until they were able to flee the city.
Several parts of the tunnel have been preserved intact.
