MOSCOW (AP) — Moscow police say an off-duty Russian police lieutenant has been hospitalized after a World War II-era land mine exploded on the side of a highway.
Police say the officer found the mine alongside the highway and sustained injuries after it exploded.
A passerby on the highway saw the injured officer and stopped to help.
The RIA Novosti news agency reported earlier Saturday that a man was injured along the highway after picking up an undetonated explosive device, resulting in injuries to his hands and face.
