An army soldier tossed a grenade into a crowd at a street fair Monday in southwest Colombia, killing five people and injuring five others, authorities said.

The attack occurred early Monday, and Isnos Mayor Abel Clavijo told Caracol radio that authorities did not know why he allegedly lobbed the grenade into the crowd.
