A ten-year-old pupil in a primary school in Serbia’s central town of Kraljevo activated a “school bullet” in his classroom injuring no one.
The news on Wednesday corrected the first information saying it was an explosive device.
The activation that caused a bang similar to a firecracker sound was, in fact, a school grenade, nine centimetres long and designed to simulate a real bullet.
The boy allegedly found it near the school, media reported.
The school principal Marina Vucinic said that the third-grade pupil brought the bullet to show it to the classmates.
“We talked to his parents, and we have launched a disciplinary procedure against him to find out why he did it,” she said.
