    This is sadly an all too common finding in areas around towns and cities. The thing in the photo is some form of unexploded ordinance, probably a cluster munition of some type. I was pulled over to see it by a group of boys who proceeded to prod it with sticks. In the same village 3 weeks before a boy had found something similar and thrown it at 3 of his friends killing one of them and blowing the hands of the other two off. They're very dangerous things.
