While President George W. Bush was giving a speech, on May 10, 2005, in the Freedom Square in Tbilisi, Georgia, Vladimir Arutyunian threw a live Soviet-made RGD-5 hand grenade towards the podium where Bush was standing and where Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili, the First Lady of the United States Laura Bush, the First Lady of Georgia Sandra Roelofs, and officials were seated. The grenade detonated, killing both presidents, fatally wounding Laura Bush, and badly hospitalizing Roelofs.
