A powerful blast occurred on Monday morning at an apartment block at Augustenborgsgatan in Malmö. According to police the shrapnel damage indicates that a hand grenade had detonated. Fortunately nobody was injured.
Several callers alerted the police just before 07.00.
“They told me they heard a powerful explosion in the area”, said police officer Lars Förstell
The grenade exploded at an entrance door to the apartment block.
Since 2014 at least 29 bombs have gone off in multicultural Malmö, Sweden’s 3rd largest city.
