Grenade explodes near players – level 2, A12
One football fan in Iran threw a grenade onto the football field.
Iranian television showed one of the players pick the grenade which he thought was a piece of harmless material. Then he threw it onto the ground near the field where the grenade exploded next to some players.
Incredibly, there were no reports of injuries but the game was cancelled and the police have started an investigation.
You can watch the video in the Level 3 section.
Interesting words: harmless (not dangerous), incredibly (hard to believe).
