Live hand grenade found at Italian tax office (ANSA) - Turin, January 7 - A live hand grenade was found in a sack dangling from the entrance of an Equitalia tax-collection office in the northwestern Italian town of Chivasso on Monday.

The bomb squad was called to remove the device, which police said came from the former Yugoslavia. Equitalia has been a repeated target for bomb scares amid austerity measures introduced during Italy's recession.
