BETHUNE, France — Two teen-agers found a World War II artillery shell in a ditch, and one was killed and the other wounded when it exploded, officials said today.

The youths found the partially buried shell late Thursday. Olivier Delerive, 17, was killed when he tried to pull it out of the ground. His companion, Christophe Amblanc, 15, suffered leg injuries and was hospitalized in Bethune, a town in northern France.
