Two men held after hand grenades found in car outside German station

German police are investigating two Bosnian men suspected of breaking arms control laws after discovering a stash of hand grenades in their car.

Officers first detained the men, who had stopped in a no-parking zone outside Dresden's main train station, because they suspected them of immigration offences.

While searching their Mercedes SUV, a police sniffer dog found 17 hand grenades hidden behind the lining of the boot.

The pair, aged 28 and 17, will be brought before a judge to decide whether to keep them detained pending further investigation.
