Six Wounded in St. Petersburg Grenade Blast

Six people were wounded in the northern Russian city of St. Petersburg when a quarrel spiraled out of control and one of the men involved threw three grenades, the ITAR-Tass news agency reported Sunday.

The argument broke out Saturday night at a restaurant, the news agency said, citing local police. One of the participants vowed revenge, left the building, and returned with a cluster of grenades. He threw them when the others were trying to leave the restaurant, and two exploded.

Two of the injured were in serious condition, while the others were just lightly wounded. A 46-year-old man was detained along with one of the injured, a 19-year-old man suspected of being an accomplice, ITAR-Tass said. No other details were available, and St. Petersburg police duty officers could not confirm the report.
