Children Playing With Grenade Lose Fingers
Here’s another reason why grenades do not make good toys for your children.
Two Palestinian children were injured on Tuesday when a grenade they were handling exploded at a school in northern Lebanon where Palestinian refugees are being temporarily housed, police said.
“The two children were injured when a grenade with which the girl was playing exploded at the Dar Es-Salam School in Bab al-Tabaneh in Tripoli,” a police spokesman told Agence France Presse.
He said the girl, who a medical source said was aged four, lost one of her fingers and the boy was slightly injured in the foot.
