india Updated: Nov 10, 2006 13:55 IST

At least five school children, including three sisters, were killed on Friday when a toy bomb with which they were playing, exploded in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

The blast took place when the children found the device in farms near their school in Neelam valley in PoK, news channels said.

Three sisters are among those killed in the blast. According to the report the girls were injured in the blast, who later died in a military hospital in the region.

Witnesses said they saw Pakistani soldiers searching the farms to find any such devices.

It is believed that both Pakistan and India have planted landmines along LoC, which cause such incidents.
