Unexploded munition kills 3 Faryab children

Mar 11, 2018 - 18:07

MAIMANA (Pajhwok): Three children, as young as five years old, were killed and a fourth sustained wounds in a landmine blast in northern Faryab province, an official said Sunday.

The slain children, including a girl, were playing with an unexploded rocket shell they had found in Kosa Qala village of Khwaja Subzposh district on Saturday evening, the town’s administrative chief said.

Abdullah Masumi told Pajhwok Afghan News the children from the same family had found a mortar bullet or a rock that exploded.

Seraj-u-Din, father of the wounded child, said the slain children aged between five and seven year were two brothers and their sister. They were children of a poor man, Rahmatullah, he said.
