BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) _ Anti-terrorism experts were investigating an unexploded hand grenade found outside the Israeli Embassy in Brussels on Thursday.

The grenade was found under a parked car on the street just before noon. Police cordoned off the surrounding neighborhood before the army’s bomb disposal squad arrived and neutralized the grenade.

Jos Colpin, spokesman for the Brussels state prosecutor, said one of the grenade’s safety pins had been left in place.

``It’s often used to spread panic because it makes an awful lot of noise. If you want to kill a lot of people you would use something different,″ he said.
