MANILA, Philippines – A fake grenade caused tension near Baclaran Church in Parañaque City on Monday morning.

Police said the fake grenade was found at the center island of a road facing Baclaran Cinema 1.

Explosive and Ordinance Division (EOD) personnel said a fake wire and safety lever were attached to a round piece of metal to make it appear as a real grenade.

No one saw who left the fake explosive in the area, but some said it could be from a robber who uses fake grenades in victimizing people. – report from Zhander Cayabyab, dzMM
