Hand Grenade Thrown Over Wall of Migrant Shelter in Madrid

HeadlineDec 05, 2019

In Spain, a hand grenade was thrown over the walls of a shelter for migrant children in the capital Madrid, in the latest attack against the children. The grenade did not explode until the bomb squad carried out a controlled explosion, and no injuries have been reported. The shelter houses unaccompanied children who have migrated to Spain. Right-wing politicians have repeatedly criticized the shelter, and a mob attacked some of the shelter’s children with clubs last month.
