Grenade injures children

Five children were injured in Berlin, two of them seriously, when a Second World War grenade they were playing with exploded.

The children, aged 10 to 13, were playing in a yard surrounded by flats at the time. Unexploded Second World War bombs are still occasionally found in Germany, often by construction workers. Reuters - Berlin
