Three killed in Nepal blast
KATHMANDU (Reuters) – Three people, including two women, were killed in a bomb blast in southwest Nepal on Monday, police said.
They said the bomb could have been left over from a decade-long civil war and accidentally exploded when children in Bhandara village, 80 km southwest of Kathmandu, were playing with it, police officer Surya Bahadur Shrestha said.
The children had picked the bomb from the nearby jungle and brought it to their village, Shrestha said.
Nepal has just emerged from a decade-long civil war which caused more than 13,000 deaths – a conflict that has left many unexploded bombs scattered across the country.
