Cop injured in USB-flash-drive explosion

Drive was sent to an attorney over a year ago

(ANSA) - Trapani, October 9 - An inspector with the judicial police at the Trapani prosecutor's office lost three fingers on Monday when a USB flash drive he inserted into a computer exploded.
    The flash drive had been sent to a local attorney over a year ago, with the return address of the Trapani Bar Association.
    After the attorney verified with the association that it had not sent the envelope, she delivered it to the judicial police.
    The envelope evidently remained untouched for over a year until the inspector inserted it into the computer on Monday, when it exploded.
