Senior Lieutenant Milán Gajdos said: at the construction site on Szeréna út a bucket lifted the explosive from the ground. The arsonist patrol commander determined that a World War II, 50-kilogram Hungarian-made aerial bomb with a secured side-ignition device was found.
He added: the explosive device will soon be prepared for shipment.
UPDATE: Milán Gajdos said: the explosive device was loaded into the cargo compartment of the fire engine’s vehicle and transported with police insurance to be destroyed.
The police lifted the closure ordered for the time of the extraction.
