Greek protester holding a mililtary grade stun grenade used by police to disperse marchers

Greek riot police used stun grenades designed for use by special forces in anti-terrorist situations to break up protests outside the ex-ministry of Macedonia and Thrace in the northern city of Thessaloniki yesterday December 15 th, 2010.

"The Grenade Hand Stun N580 and Grenade Hand Stun Multi’s N582, N591 and N592 are diversionary assault grenades, designed for use in confined spaces by Special Forces during hostage release. Noise and candela levels induce disorientation in any persons within the effective range."
