An eight-year-old boy from Birmingham was killed after a grenade exploded in an apartment in Sweden.
The boy was visiting family in Gothenburg when the blast hit their third-floor apartment early on Monday, Swedish police said.
He died of his injuries on the way to hospital.
The youngster was named in reports as Yuusuf Warsame, a pupil at Nelson Mandela Primary School in Sparkhill, Birmingham.
A family member told the Birmingham Mail that two of his siblings and his mother were also caught up in the attack.
The violence was linked to a gangland feud by Swedish media, who quoted police as saying a man convicted of a fatal shooting last year was registered at the address.
