    A little late with a reply....I just saw this interesting post. Nice pics Dimas.

    No, the yellow color would indicate it was a HE (High Explosive) grenade, that was filled with TNT. It is a British made grenade body.

    Here look, a few more pics of them, and some info.....

    No, that is dactivated, even the locally made explosives is not a stable, this kind of grenade leaves unstable with this kind of fuse system
