Grenade Blast Kills Bride at Wedding

ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) – A grenade exploded at a wedding in eastern Ethiopia, killing the bride and three other people, state-run Ethiopian News Agency (ENA) reported on Friday.

In Ethiopia's remote, rural communities it is not uncommon for guests to fire their guns in the air at weddings in wild jubilation, although incidents involving grenades are rare.

"A grenade fell from a belt of an individual during a group dance at a wedding ceremony at Hamyao Sera farmers' community in eastern Ethiopia killing four persons including the bride who was participating in the dance last Saturday," ENA said.

Police called on people owning illegal weapons such as grenades to hand them to the authorities for their own safety. Ethiopians must have a license to own a firearm.

I think I will ask the wedding guests to leave the grenades at home since it would be my luck that I'd be hit instead of Sam.
