"...the kids intended to take the device to their residence..."
On Sunday, an explosive device from previous military conflicts detonated within the vicinity of the Deyak district in the eastern Ghazni province of Afghanistan, resulting in the unfortunate demise of a young child and causing injury to another.
This event marks the second instance within six days characterized by similar circumstances. In the prior occurrence, during the course of Tuesday, an explosive device, attributed to residual remnants from prior conflicts, erupted and resulted in the fatalities of two female siblings in Nangarhar, a province located in Afghanistan.
According to reports, Afghanistan is considered as one of the nations with the highest level of mine contamination globally.
The recurring explosions caused by dormant explosive devices abandoned from the preceding 40 years of armed conflicts and civil wars primarily result, on a monthly basis, in the unfortunate fatalities and physical injuries of several individuals, primarily children.
