Hand Made Grenade thrown at President Bush

http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory?id=745799

WASHINGTON May 10, 2005 — The Secret Service was investigating a report Tuesday that a hand grenade was thrown at the stage during President Bush's speech in the former Soviet republic of Georgia.
After Bush left Georgia on Tuesday, the Secret Service was informed by Georgian authorities of a report that a device, possibly a hand grenade, had been thrown within 100 feet of the stage during Bush's speech, hit someone in the crowd and fell to the ground, Secret Service spokesman Jonathan Cherry said.

According to the report, a Georgian security officer picked up the device and removed it from the area. The Secret Service had not seen the device as of Tuesday evening, Cherry said. It has agents in Tbilisi working with the FBI, State Department and Georgian authorities to investigate the report.

Cherry said he couldn't characterize the source of the report.

Bush was returning to the United States late Tuesday after a four-country trip that also included stops in Russia, Latvia and the Netherlands. He was the first American president to visit Georgia.

Officials Say Grenade Thrown At Bush in Georgia, No One Hurt

May 10, 2005 -- A device identified as a grenade was thrown within 100 feet of the stage where President Bush was giving a speech today in the former Soviet republic of Georgia, local authorities told the U.S. Secret Service. The device did not go off and no one was hurt, the Secret Service said.

Local police told the Secret Service the device was thrown as Bush spoke in Freedom Square in Tbilisi, the Georgian capital. The device hit someone and fell to the ground about 100 feet away from the stage, where local authorities grabbed it, Georgian officials told the Secret Service.

The Secret Service said it was unaware of any disturbance until it was informed of the incident by Georgian police.
It was not clear whether the device was a live grenade. The Secret Service said none of its personnel had seen the device, but it was taking the matter seriously. Secret Service agents were in Tblisi investigating.

Bush was in Georgia on the last leg of a five-day, four-country trip that included stops in Latvia, the Netherlands and Russia.

In Tbilisi, he was cheered by tens of thousands of onlookers as he applauded the Georgian people's push for democracy.

"Your courage is inspiring democratic reformers and sending a message that echoes across the world: Freedom will be the future of every nation and every people on Earth," he said.

The president and Mrs. Bush were back in Washington this evening.

ABC News' Pierre Thomas contributed to this report.

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"
