In a computer club, a pupil of a Dagestani school handed over to his classmate a grenade found on the outskirts of the village. However, the boy dropped it, and an explosion occurred. This was reported by the Dagestani Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA).

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on April 24, an explosion occurred in a computer club in the village of Agvali, where pupils of the local school stayed. According to investigators, the children found a grenade and it exploded. As a result of the explosion, one child was killed, and five other children and five adult men were injured.
