Departments of the Local and Federal Police of Namur and Luxembourg received specialist training on Thursday to enable them to deal with Molotov cocktails, according to social media. A Molotov cocktail is a generic name used for a variety of bottle-based improvised incendiary weapons. Due to the relative ease of production, Molotov cocktails have been widely used by all manner of people as a destructive device throughout history.
"In these sometimes dangerous situations, the group spirit is essential," said the Federal police on Twitter. This training has been given for many years by the trainers of the National Police Academy, it adds on Facebook.
