Manila, Philippines A hand grenade was found inside a pushcart outside of the office of the Philippine Star (an English-language print and digital newspaper in the Philippines). The cart owner discovered the munition and reported the find to authorities.
Manila Police District bomb disposal responded and safely detonated the hand grenade without incident. The grenade was reportedly missing its control pin, so it had to be disposed of in place.
Police have not reported any leads as to why the item was there, but suspect that it could be related to an earlier arrest in the area, in which a man was reported to be abusing his live-in partner. According to the report, the man was found to have possessed a grenade.
