Blast kills eight children in Sudan: police
KHARTOUM� Eight children were killed in the Sudanese city of Omdurman when an unidentified object they
found exploded, a police spokesman said.
Seven children were killed on the spot while the eighth one died of wounds
at a hospital, General Hashim Abdelrahim said.
He said the children, who were thought to be searching for scrap on Saturday, which they later sell, came across a strange object which exploded when they handled it.
The area where the incident took place in north Omdurman hosted a military facility several years ago.
Abdelrahim said the police were investigating the incident.
