"Nine people have received injuries as of now. Two persons lost their lives including the one who set off the explosion and one of the defendants in the case," she said.
During the hearing of a murder case, the man took out one or two hand grenades and detonated them. The law enforcers are establishing the exact number of blasts. The eyewitnesses reportedly heard two explosions.
Starchevska also said that the court was hearing a case of murder committed in late 2015 (two people were gunned down in a car). It was the father of one of the murdered who set off the explosion in the courtroom, she said.
It is known that the blast occurred after the court had ruled to adjourn the hearing once again.
