RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (Reuters) - A Brazilian man died Tuesday when he tried to open what police believe was a rocket-propelled grenade with a sledgehammer in a mechanical workshop on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro.
Another man who was in the workshop at the time of the explosion was rushed to a hospital with severe burns, a police officer told Reuters. The workshop was destroyed and several cars parked outside caught fire.
Police found several unexploded army issue rocket-propelled grenades in the workshop. They believe the ammunition had been brought there by scavengers wanting to sell them as scrap metal, but they also are investigating a possible link to Rio's heavily armed drug gangs who often raid military bases.

You guys wouldn't believe...........
People have tried to chip explosives out of art'y rounds with a hammer and chisel, but my sort of favorite was, we got a call when I was in Korea about a farmer (?) sawing a 500 pound bomb in half. When we got to the location the area was nothing but a smoking hole!

Ouch, thats gonna leave a bruise. Wouldn't it have made sense to sell the RPG on the black market instead? Seems like it would bring in more money than scrap.........
