Solomon Islands: Men working for WW2 bomb clearing agency die in explosion

Two men working for an aid agency which helps dispose of unexploded bombs have been killed in an explosion in the Solomon Islands.

Briton Stephen Atkinson and Australian Trent Lee were employees of Norwegian People's Aid.

The blast took place in a residential part of the capital Honiara on Sunday.

The Solomon Islands, a WW2 battleground in the South Pacific, are littered with thousands of unexploded bombs.
