Children found dynamite

The two boys, age five and seven, found something quite unexpected when they were out picking mushrooms with their mother; a bag full of dynamite.

The dynamite, placed in a nice bag, was found in the woods at Eydeham in Arendal.

«We all wondered what this was, and we took the bag with us on to the path we had been walking on, and opened it carefully. Inside, rapped in two garbage bags, was a box. It was written explosives on the box, 36 kilo actually, and the sticks of dynamite were lying in clear plastic,» the boys’ mother explained to the local paper Agderposten. «That is when we called the police.»

The dynamite, which was enough to blow up several of houses, was handed over to the police who have launched an investigation.
