Description : The 6 years old boy was wounded when his 15-year-old brother brought an unexploded ordnance home, thinking it was a toy or something they could resell. The object was black and metallic. Their mother looked at it and didn’t know what it was either, but agreed it might be something they could sell. Suddenly, it exploded inside their hut, killing the older brother on the spot and wounding the younger one. He is recovering from his physical wounds, and his mum, mother of six, remains by his side in hospital.
