10:10, August 15, 2011

BERLIN, Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- An explosive device went off in a Berlin park Sunday, leaving a man seriously wounded in a park of Berlin, the capital of Germany, local police said.
A 57-year-old man happened to pick up a plastic bag as he strolled with his dog in Schiller Park, at Wedding district of northwestern Berlin, on Sunday afternoon, as the bag was surprisingly detonated.

The man with injuries on face and both legs was then rushed to hospital for treatment, and his wounds are reportedly not fatal.

Police quickly cordoned off the park to an extensive range, and there are no further report on other details.

Criminal technical experts and anti-explosive specialists arrived at the site shortly afterwards to deal with latent risky consequences.

Schiller Park is a popular excursion spot for Berlin citizens.
