Two brothers were killed and another sustained wounded in a grenade blast in Swat district of KP province, 24NewsHD TV channel reported on Monday.

The deceased were identified as 11-year old Karim and nine-year-old Jamal. Three siblings spotted the grenade and brought it home, police said, adding that it went off when they put it on fire. Backed by lawmen, rescuers rushed to the blast site and shifted the bodies and the injured to a hospital.

Last year, Unicef felt strong concerns for the children in conflict-hit areas. “We offer our heartfelt sympathy to the families affected by these horrific incidents and share hopes for the recovery of the children who survived,” said Aida Girma, Unicef Representative in Pakistan.

She added: “No child should fall victim to landmines or explosive remnants of war. Unicef will continue to support the Government of Pakistan in mine risk education to raise awareness on the risks posed by landmines and explosives among children and families living in crisis-affected areas. It is equally important to continue clearing minefields and to rehabilitate and reintegrate those who have survived accidents.”
