      Unclear if 3rd device destroyed by explosion or more usual small water cannon which breaks things up sufficiently to inhibit explosion – but still sound enough to sort for sources. Doubtful if any news reporting is accurate as far as unexploded devices is concerned. Parallel to the fog or war is apt – at this point in time.

      Any orders would have come from local PD – priority being protecting folks.
