Unexploded ordnance from old wars and conflicts pose a serious threat in war and conflict zones. An incident of abandoned grenade explosion during high altitude counter insurgency operations led to penetrative brain trauma and demise of three children. A high index of suspicion is warranted with aged/expired/unexploded ordnance, which may have unstable explosive ingredients; and hence, could pose a threat to the military.
