Two children killed, three hurt in Nepal accidental bomb blast
KATHMANDU, Jan 3 (AFP) - At least two children were killed and three injured when a bomb left behind by Maoist rebels went off accidently in Kalikot, west of here, state-run television said Thursday.
"Two children were killed on the spot and three others injured in an accidental bomb blast at Kalikot Wednesday noon," Nepal Television said quoting the home ministry.
One of the injured was said to be in a serious condition.
The rebels have been fighting for a Nepal republic since 1996 in an insurgency which has so far claimed more than 2,300 lives.
