Blast kills In­dian slum chil­dren

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

Two chil­dren were killed and four oth­ers in­jured yes­ter­day in an ex­plo­sion in a crowded slum in north­ern In­dia. The blast ap­peared to have been caused by a home­made bomb that ex­ploded in the Kareli area on the out­skirts of Al­la­habad city, in Ut­tar Pradesh state, ac­cord­ing to po­lice of­fi­cials. All six of the vic­tims were poor rag­pick­ers, who sort through heaps of rub­bish for scraps of plas­tic, glass, me­tal and other ob­jects they can sell to re­cy­clers for cash.
