KABUL, AFGHANISTAN - MAY 16.  .18-year-old Shah Mohammad was grazing his sheep when he accidentally detonated a 40 mm grenade that lay on the ground next to him. He was grazing his animals on a firing range called the East River Range used by Bagram Airbase as a training and target practice area. He lost his left hand during this incident. He lost his right hand a few years back from another unexploded ordnance in his village located in Parwan Province north of Kabul, Afghanistan. (Javier Manzano / For The Washington Post).
