A eleven year old boy was seriously injured when an Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) he found behind his house exploded Saturday around 10:30 a.m, at Aalam Veethy, Meeravodai 4 at Ottamavadi in Valaichenai police division in Batticaloa.

The injured boy was identified as A. Peroskhan whose face, hands, stomach and legs have been badly injured, hospital sources said.
