A WWII bomb was found in the River Danube at the south-part of the Hungarian capital. On Wednesday, several police cars, army pyrotechnists and personnel closed the Rákóczi Bridge to pull out and deactivate the founded piece of artillery.
In the last few months WWII bombs were found several times in Budapest. Almost a month ago authorities found one at a construction site on the corner of József körút and Krúdy Gyula utca.
One and a half month ago, on Wednesday, authorities emptied Buda’s MOM Park shopping centre and its environs after another WWII bomb was found in the capital. Then, a total of 52 people had to leave 51 nearby apartments.
