Chinese fishmonger finds live bomb inside squid

A Chinese man selling seafood at a market in Guangdong province got more than he asked for when he opened up a three-foot-long squid to find a three-pound, eggplant-shaped bomb inside, the Telegraph reported Monday. The fishmonger, identified only as Mr. Huang, immediately called authorities, who then disabled the bomb with a controlled detonation.

"This sort of squid lives close to the shore and normally makes a meal of small fish and prawns," the fishmonger, identified only as Mr. Huang, told his local paper Guangzhou Daily.

"Perhaps he thought the bomb was his favorite food and gulped it down. He certainly had a big belly when he was caught."

Police suspected a fighter jet might have dropped the bomb, though they didn't say when.
