(CS) During a visit by Handicap International to a Luxembourg secondary school on Friday, a fake mine was swiped by a student, causing a moment of panic.

Reports that the school had to be evacuated after a mine was stolen, and that students were given the afternoon off, spread like wildfire.

However, Handicap International has clarified that the mine was a fake and for demonstration purposes only. While a student did in fact steal the fake mine, there was never any danger and the school was not evacuated.
