A mine-awareness team in Uganda was horrified to find an unexploded bomb being used as a bell when it visited a school to teach children how to spot bombs.

The Anti-Mine Network saw teachers banging the bomb with stones to call children to lessons in a 700-pupil school in a rural area, the Daily Monitor newspaper reported.

"Its head was still active, which means that if it is hit by a stronger force, it would explode instantly and cause untold destruction," Wilson Bwambale, a co-ordinator of the organisation, said.
