Kids Find Toxics

MOSCOW () -- Children at play in central Russia found seven containers of extremely toxic substances, including rocket fuel, Itar-Tass reported Sunday.

The containers, three of which were not sealed, were discovered near a former missile base some 45 kilometers from the Urals town of Chelyabinsk, regional sanitary services spokesman Andrei Gavrilov was quoted as saying.

Chelyabinsk regional governor Pyotr Sumin ordered all the containers to be placed in a safe place so that the waste, some of which had evaporated, could be secured.
