Man dies in Sweden after picking up suspected hand grenade

"That's all we know", a local fire service chief told Swedish Television, which also reported that police and medics were at the location. The couple had been cycling past the device when the man stopped to investigate it.

"It is too early to say", Mr Olsson said.

The man, in his 60s, was rushed to a hospital but later died, while the woman, in her mid-40s, suffered minor wounds to her face and both legs, Olsson said. The report quoted police sources as saying that there was no indication that the explosion was directed against any individuals or property.

On Sunday morning, police searched the area around the station, which was cordoned off as a bomb squad was called in to carry out an investigation.
