BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) _ A bomb from the 1991 Gulf War exploded Monday in a residential district in southern Iraq, killing five children, the official Iraqi News Agency reported.

Two of the victims were 11, two were 14, and one was 13, INA said.

It said the bomb was a remnant of the ``vicious Zionist and American aggression on Iraq.''

On Jan. 25, a similar explosion killed 21 women and children in Basra.

There are frequent reports of deaths and injuries caused by unexploded bombs dropped on Iraq during the Gulf War, which led to the liberation of Kuwait.
