Grenade-shaped belt buckle sparks scare in Barcelona, Madrid train stations | Bangkok Post: news


MADRID - A woman carrying a grenade-shaped belt buckle on a train from Barcelona to Madrid caused havoc on Wednesday, forcing railway stations to be evacuated as well as delays. Police subsequently evacuated two high-speed trains at the Barcelona station but didn't find anything, the spokesman said. People were then evacuated from the Spanish capital's main Atocha station, the state-owned Adif company which manages the country's railway stations told AFP. When the train arrived, they checked the luggage and found that the grenade-like object was actually a "belt buckle," a police spokeswoman said. It is unclear why security personnel in Barcelona let the passenger get onto the train if they were worried about the potential grenade.
