Boy Killed by Shell

MOSCOW -- A 14-year-old boy was killed Monday when he tried to disassemble an artillery shell, Itar-Tass reported.

The boy found the shell lying outside a munitions depot located near the village of Talovy, in the Far East, the news agency reported, quoting the local police.

It wasn't immediately clear why the shell was outside. Military depots in the Far East have been plagued by a series of fires that have sent shells and rockets flying out of their storage facilities.
