BAYONNE - Two men accused of throwing homemade explosives from their Bayonne apartment over the weekend were charged Monday.

Christopher Ziobro, 21, and his 18-year-old friend, Ghais Mirza, were arraigned in Hudson County, charged with tossing bombs made of toilet cleaner from a window into the parking lot.

Neighbors say the incident happened on the third floor of an apartment building at West 33rd Street this past weekend.

The young men face multiple charges, including that of creating risk of widespread injury or damage. They each face up to 10 years in prison if they are convicted.

Mirza's attorney says the boys are being made an example of in the wake of the attacks in Boston.
