The scavenger stored the items in a building near a Tsangaya school.

Tragically, the IED exploded around 2pm, causing fatalities and severe injuries.

All efforts to get confirmation from security agencies on the incident proved abortive, but our correspondent who spoke to a security source confirmed the deadly blast and shared pictures of the gory scene.
