More than 50,000 people evacuated in Italy due to bomb

In order to successfully eliminate the danger, approximately a thousand law enforcement officers and 250 volunteers were involved.

In Italy, 54,000 people were evacuated in the city of Brindisi due to the discovery of a World War II bomb, Ukraine’s 112 TV channel reported on Sunday, December 15.

The unexploded bomb was discovered by construction workers on Sunday morning during work to expand the Andromeda cinema.

In order to successfully eliminate the danger, approximately a thousand law enforcement officers and 250 volunteers were involved.

The bomb itself was defused by 15 military deminers. It could have been left by the Royal Air Force pilots who bombed Brindisi in 1941.

The city authorities summoned the military deminers and ordered the creation of a so-called “red zone” in the area of the terrible find, which was strictly forbidden to stay until the full end of the bomb disposal operation.

Recall, in the north of Italy found a bomb from World War II. Then 4,000 people were evacuated.

Earlier it was reported that a homemade bomb was found in a school parking lot in the American city of San Jose, California.
