Armenian Killing

YEREVAN, Armenia — Angered by a dispute over drinking water, an Armenian man threw an anti-tank grenade at a line of people waiting for water from a delivery truck, killing his mother and a village elder, officials said Monday.

Eight people were injured in the blast in the Caucasus Mountains village of Borz, said regional Governor Pandukht Manukian.

The man, Levon Movsisian, had argued with other villagers in the line, Manukian said. Movsisian was apparently not aware that his mother was there when he threw the grenade.

Movsisian has been arrested and an investigation is under way.
