Two Palestinian boys killed by old mortar shell near Hebron

Two 12-year-old Palestinian boys were killed and two other teenagers were injured Tuesday near Hebron when unexploded ordinance exploded, Palestinian news agencies reported.
The old mortar shell exploded in a field containing scrap metal, in which the boys had been playing.
