    Mexican drug cartels, whose trafficking efforts into the U.S. have grown bolder amid the border crisis, are increasingly utilizing a frightening weapon in their arsenal: the hand grenade. Whether packed with explosives, hollowed out and filled with steel to give them authentic heft or even used to deliver handwritten death threats, grenades are turning up in greater frequency in encounters with suspected cartel members, according to law enforcement authorities and border experts. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials confirmed to FoxNews.com that they’ve seen a “trend increase” involving the devices along the entire southwest border, although details were not disclosed...

    A recent gift to the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial blew officials there away. Not literally, thank goodness. Because the gift that came in seven very heavy boxes was a collection of 119 vintage — but inert — grenades or parts of grenades from various battlefields and combatants of the war. These are not all just familiar pineapple-shaped explosives. Many are exotic specimens that will allow the museum to display the evolution of the grenade during the first truly industrial war. They are among several important acquisitions recently. There is a crude Austrian grenade devised in the...
