A teenager reported to the Ministry for Emergencies (MfE) of Azerbaijan that he had found a grenade in an abandoned front garden in a yard of a house in Ganja Avenue in Baku.

Rescuers from the Azerbaijani MfE and combat engineers from the Azerbaijan National Agency for Mine Action (ANAMA) left for the place where the grenade had been found. They took the grenade to a special ground and blew it up, the "Mir 24" reported on February 10.
