Ananova – How not to test a hand grenade…: “How not to test a hand grenade…
A drunken German who bought three hand grenades at a flea market in Bosnia has been arrested after throwing one out of the window to see whether it worked.
The 36-year-old took the three hand grenades home to Frankfurt as souvenirs where he kept them in a drawer for ten years.
But after drinking heavily with friends he showed one of them the explosive devices and decided to pull the pin on one after his pals claimed they did not believe they were real.
The grenade exploded between two blocks of flats and police who quickly traced the man thanks to eye-witnesses seized the two other unexploded grenades.
He was released after he sobered up and faces charges of illegal possession of explosives.”
