KLANG: A row of shops near the Klang Sentral bus terminal in Meru here was almost blown up Tuesday when an armed hand grenade placed nearby failed to explode.

According to police, the grenade did not explode because its components were old and rusted.

Police were notified about the grenade around 10am when passers-by spotted it outside the shops at the terminal.

The grenade was detonated in a nearby open area around noon by a police bomb squad that had rushed to the scene.

Police said the grenade did not belong to the military or police force.
