Sappers secure five WWII-era bombs in Kraków

During construction works on Blicha Street in the centre of Kraków, southern Poland, four 100-kilogramme bombs from World War 2 were found by the labourers.

The unexploded shells were secured by a sapper team, who thoroughly searched the adjacent area, and later found another, similar-sized bomb.

In spite of the fact that the University Hospital is located nearby Blicha Street, no evacuation of its residents, nor the citizens living in the surrounding buildings was needed.

The operation lasted a few hours and, after that, the explosives were safely transferred to the testing ground in the nearby town of Pasternik.
