Package detonation not really a very explosive occasion

The Toronto bomb squad took three tries to detonate a package wrapped in duct tape and showing a fuse outside St. Eugene Catholic School in Etobicoke on Sunday. The explosion seemed to suggest the device was not an active bomb but an analysis of the content may reveal that answer. It was reported by a man who saw three boys “playing with” the package. They fled when he asked them about it. Police tried to “disrupt” the device twice, without success. It exploded with a loud bang on the third attempt, with sparks and flames continuing to burn for a short while after the detonation.
