Lahore: Three children were killed today?and another injured when a "toy bomb" exploded in a village bordering India in Pakistan's Punjab province.

There were conflicting reports about the explosion in Tughalpura village in Narowal district, some 80 kilometres from Lahore, where three children aged between 7 and 10 were killed and one suffered serious injuries.

Another report said the children?found a "toy bomb" that exploded while they were playing with it.
