A dangerous grenade was found on the beach in Lithuania's western resort town of Nida on Wednesday night.

Aloyzas Mickus, deputy commander of the Lithuanian anti-terrorist operations unit ARAS, told BNS the police was notified about the discovery by people who were walking on the beach.

The grenade could not be transported as it was too dangerous, therefore, it was destroyed on site. Mickus said the grenade was probably washed out from the sea.

It was a modern grenade produced in Sweden, he said.
