Trade Union Leader: 2016 Deaths of Two Dutch Soldiers Due to Defective Grenades

In July 2016, two Dutch soldiers were killed in Mali in an exercise during which a grenade exploded in a mortar.  An investigation now shows that the grenades were defective.  They were purchased ten years ago from Bulgaria for the war in Afghanistan.  Mr. Jean Debi, chairman of the Military Trade Union, VBM, said that the military authorities knew that the grenades used in the exercise were defective.
