Girl Takes Grenade to School, Kids Flee

A SCHOOL in northern France was evacuated yesterday after a nine-year-old girl took a World War II handgrenade to show to the class.

Her teacher had asked students to bring an unusual object to school, according to deputy police chief Vincent Roberti.

The girl obliged, pulling a grenade her brother had found out of her bag.

The teacher "immediately reacted, putting the weapon in a plastic bag, taking it to the courtyard and warning the school principal,'' Mr Roberti said.

Police, firefighters and bomb-disposal experts arrived on the scene while the 191-student school was evacuated.

Mr Roberti said the grenade did not explode when the pin was finally removed.
