One of the five children who were injured in the blast this morning in Thakwa Nagar, Mutur died due to his injuries, police spokesman SP Preshantha Jayakody told Daily Mirror online.

The blast had reportedly occurred while the children were playing with a mortar fuze they found in a plastic bag.

    Parents should be advised not to send their children to risky areas.

    this is da reason why Govt keeeping people in camps until all areas cleared of land mines & other hazards. if they let people go then all wl shout they were sent to be killed. it takes along time to clear. UN & other agencies who promised help are either not keeping to word or too slow. let fools shout but Govt has done da right thing to protect its people

    Now don't tell Govt or Mervin wz behind the seen!

    This incident was happened in Muttur in Trinco (not wanni) and already govt removed mines and etc 3years ago. Before U write something better to understand the location of place in srilanka map.

    Oh what sad scenes, my prayers go out for these innocent children, sadly these things will keep happening in the future due to N/E areas being not fully cleared.

    Senna Saturday, 23 October 2010 12:43 PM

    Rajan , u better think about the way the Govt is handling the clearing of these areas , don't try to be a LTTE Symphathiser. Still your heart and mind are with Brutal Terrorrists.

    krish Saturday, 23 October 2010 01:03 PM

    i am not a LTTE supporter,but pd u should know ur geography first,dont connect muthur incident to wanni.dont blindly support everything what governtment does.pd be wise.

    Lamaya Saturday, 23 October 2010 01:32 PM

    There was one side of Trinco that was under LTTE control until early last year. It was then that the ship that Yoshitha Rajapaksa was sailing in was attacked!
