Officials at Camp Pendleton said an explosion that killed four Marines at the California-based military base last year was probably caused when a grenade round was mishandled. Two Marines were relieved of duty after an investigation. Three had at least a decade of service time. The base said the grenade round was probably “dropped, kicked or bumped” in a demolition pit. The two dismissed Marines, an officer and a staff non-commissioned officer, were relieved for a lack of confidence in their ability to conduct training and adhere to guidelines.
