Crude Bomb Found Outside of English Masonic Hall in Cornwall, England


by Christopher Hodapp

Seemingly unrelated to the U.S. protests over the past week, an incendiary bomb was found outside of a Masonic lodge in Penryn, Cornwall, England early Tuesday mor ning. According to a BBC story, the bomb squad from the Royal Navy were called in to defuse the crude device, which authorities said "represented a danger to themselves as well as the locality in which it was placed." It did not explode, and there was no injury or damage.



The Penryn Masonic Hall is home to The Lodge of the Three Grand Principles No. 967, St. Gluvias Lodge 7936, and St. Budoc's Lodge 8445, all holden under the United Grand lodge of England.

According to the CornwallLive website, "Police are treating the discovery as arson with intent to endanger life. Incident ongoing."
