Russian Girl, 5, Wounded By Bomb

KOMSOMOLSK-ON-AMUR, Russia, Aug. 3 (UPI) — A 5-year-old Russian girl is in danger of losing her sight after she picked up a bomb packaged like a toy, authorities say.

The girl, a kindergartner in the far eastern city of Komsomolsk-on-Amur, picked up a small homemade explosive that had a sticker with a smiley face on it, The Moscow Times reported, citing Lifenews.ru.

The victim was hospitalized with burns in her chest and eyes, the local Investigative Committee said, and Amurmedia.ru, a local news site, reported she was in surgery to save her eyesight.

An unemployed local man in his late 20s with a criminal record has been arrested, the Interfax news agency said.

Andrei Sergeyev, police chief of the Khabarovsk region, said the kindergarten’s administration had not installed fences and surveillance cameras as recommended.
