Description : On April 29, 2018, while walking to school, a group of children from the Gul family found an unexploded ordnance. They took it home, where one of the children dropped it. The device exploded, scattering hundreds of fragments, killing four people and seriously injuring several children. Seven children had to have at least one leg amputated because the bones and tissues were too badly damaged. Two boys lost both their legs.
