Stupid kids...

Three die playing catch with grenade Mon Nov 7,11:27 AM ET



BANJA LUKA, Bosnia (Reuters) - A hand grenade being used instead of a ball in a game of catch exploded early on Saturday killing three youths in this Bosnian town, police and news agencies said.

Two youths aged 19 and 20, one of them from neighboring Croatia, were killed instantly while a 20-year-old woman died on her way to hospital, police said. Her sister was slightly injured but two other youths suffered serious injuries.

The blast occurred at 2:00 a.m. in the western town of Novi Grad at a place in the town center frequented by youngsters. Police said an inquiry was under way and declined further comment. It was not clear why the grenade exploded.

ONASA news agency quoted witnesses as saying the youths tossed the hand grenade to each other before it exploded in the hands of one of them.

Bosnia is awash with illegal weapons left over from the 1992-95 war and tragic incidents are frequent despite several successful campaigns by international peacekeepers and police to get people to hand over illegal weapons.

I think that was it's main function...

I think it means whether the pin was pulled or it hit the ground

You´d think the foreign presence would have made sure there´d be no mines 10 years after, but hey, I guess they have more important jobs to do..

I heard about this but you'd really think 19 and 20 year old would have more sense to play with a grenade. Fair enough if they were actually kids and didnt know what it was etc but somebody their age should really know better.

Године пролазе моје,
ја чекам титуле твоје,
и сваким даном све више
волим те!

Of course and a job has to be done to clear this up for everyone's safety.
