A team of police officers survived a grenade attack here Monday night after two men lobbed the explosive at 7:15 p.m.

Chief Inspector Ronnie Cordero, Kabacan town police chief, said nobody was hurt in the blast.

"Our troops were taking their dinner when the grenade exploded just outside the police outpost," Cordero said.

Two men riding tandem on motorbike was seen passing by the roadside detachment located at the corner of Miracle Street and Sunset Drive when one of the suspects tossed the explosive then sped away, Cordero said.
