A US-made second world war aerial bomb weighing 500kg discovered by a dredger in the Petroleum bay of the Danube river at south Budapest’s Csepel district on Tuesday has been neutralised, the Hungarian army bomb squad said.
The bomb had ignition devices at both ends and these had to be deactivated before it was neutralised and then transported by boat to a depository.
An exclusion zone was set up for the operation which has since been opened.
