Abandoned hand grenade kills 6 Pakistani children

PARACHINAR, Pakistan--A hand grenade killed six children Sunday who found it while playing in a field in northwestern Pakistan, police said.

The dead girl and five boys belong to two families displaced from a nearby tribal region, Orakzai, said Mian Iftikhar, the police chief of Hangu where the incident took place.

The region lies near restive areas on the Afghan border that are home to Pakistani and al-Qaida-linked foreign Islamic militants. The military has carried out offensives recently in the tribal areas.
