Molotov cocktails found in Md. dorm

University of Maryland, Baltimore County campus police reported Sunday finding two Molotov cocktails a day earlier in a dormitory stairwell.

The two homemade incendiary devices, filled with a flammable liquid with a wick inserted into the mouth of the container, were discovered about 10:20 a.m. Saturday by a UMBC employee in an exterior stairwell of Gunpowder-Terrace Apartments, a student dormitory on the Catonsville campus of the university, said Paul Dillon, deputy chief of the UMBC Police Department.
