Police arrest two French children for detonating homemade bombs

The Associated Press

DIEPPE, France- Police on Friday arrested two 13-year-old children who detonated homemade bombs containing aluminum and acid in northern France, officials said.

No one was injured in the explosions over the past two days in central Dieppe, but police officials said the bombs could have caused severe burns because they splashed acid several meters (yards) away.

Witnesses saw the children throwing bottles containing a yellow liquid near shops in the town on the English Channel. Police declined to identify the type of acid used.

The children, who were not identified, were being held Friday afternoon at a Dieppe police station.
