Israel has withdrawn military forces from the Rafah refugee camp on the Gaza-Egypt border, but an Israeli military official says efforts to uncover weapons-smuggling tunnels in the camp will continue. The six-day military siege on the camp left more than 40 Palestinians dead and dozens of homes razed. Rafah residents are mourning the dead and assessing the damage. NPR's Julie McCarthy reports.
