Another person who was injured in an explosion of a World War II shell in Solomon Islands last week has died.
The National Referral Hospital confirmed to local media that Charley Noda died on Saturday night in the capital.
Noda was one of four people injured in the incident eight days ago.
They were part of a church youth group cooking food outdoors, who had unknowingly built their wood-fire over a buried 101mm cannon shell left over from WWII. The shell was detonated by the heat of the cooking fire.
