(Newser) – Four Marines at California's Camp Pendleton were killed today in a training accident, reports Reuters. It's not clear exactly what happened, but NBC News reports that they were killed when an unexploded ordnance blew up. The Marines, who haven't been identified, had reportedly finished their drills and were clearing the training area when the accident occurred. It follows one involving live ammunition that killed seven Marines earlier this year in Nevada.

Who ever hit "hilarious" or "brilliant" should be strung up close to death and revived at least 100 times then shot.
