Gunman in Hamas funeral procession shows off grenades, drops one .... bang

I thought this was an interesting sub article. During a Hamas funeral procession one person was showing off a jacket with grenades, one fell off. In the resulting explosion he died.

An explosion near a funeral procession in Gaza killed three people and injured at least 30 mourners, medical officials said. Police said it may have been caused by a grenade dropped by a gunman who took part in the funeral march.

The funeral was being held for three militants who were killed in an Israeli air strike yesterday. Witnesses said gunmen were firing in the air during the funeral before the powerful explosion. Gunfire and fireworks are common at funerals in Gaza.

Witnesses said one of the marchers was carrying explosives in a jacket he was wearing and was showing them off to passers-by as he chanted atop one of the cars. He died in the explosion.
