Two men were killed and three injured in Azerbaijan’s second largest city after a grenade exploded in a café.

Maharram Ahmadov, 44, and his nephew Taleh Ahmadov, 31, were killed after an F1 grenade detonated in Ahmadov’s hand in a tea house in Ganja.

The incident was sparked by a dispute, and several men involved who survived the blast were detained. The prosecutor’s office in Ganja has launched an investigation.

Ahmadov’s son Nariman Ahmadov, born in 1998, Ahmadov’s nephew Orkhan Mirzayev, born in 1994, and Sadig Ahmadov, born in 1975, were injured, according to the APA.az news agency. The three were taken to a nearby hospital with shrapnel wounds.
