MOSCOW, April 24. /TASS/. A grenade that killed one teenager and wounded 11 more at a school in Russia’s North Caucasian republic of Dagestan was brought to school by a schoolboy, a spokesman for the Dagestani Interior Ministry told TASS on Monday.
"According to verified information, a hand grenade went off in an IT room of a secondary school. It was brought by a schoolboy," the spokesman said, adding that an investigation is underway.
The spokesman said the explosion occurred due to mishandling of the grenade. The incident took place in a secondary school in the settlement of Agvali.
