Old Explosives Found In Downtown
Two bombs dating from the second world war were recently found in downtown Budapest, a Hungarian Army bomb disposal unit communications officer told MTI.

The unit has so far found a Soviet and a German explosive device near the Ferris wheel on Erzsébet Square in the city centre, Milán Gajdos said.

Pedestrian traffic was restricted in a fifty-meter radius around the area popular with tourists.
