BANGKOK, June 2 (Xinhua) -- Four hand grenades were found inside a postal box in the Thai capital Bangkok and were finally defused by police on Friday.

An Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit defused the M67 grenades at the private-owned postal shop in Bangkhen area after a shopkeeper had called the police for help.

The EOD police used duct tape to tie up the safety pins of the grenades which could possibly blow up and kill or injure people in five to 10 meters radius, the police said. They are yet to be disposed of by the EOD police at a later date.
