World War II bomb discovered beneath streets of Belgrade

Construction workers in central Belgrade in Serbia were in for a shock on Saturday when they uncovered an unexploded bomb from World War II

A bomb dropped during World War II has been recovered from a construction site in Belgrade city centre.

Workers found the unexploded shell at a depth of 20ft during an excavation in Budimska Street on Saturday. The site was promptly evacuated as well as an adjacent building.

Specialist teams removed the bomb shortly before 11pm. Ivica Dacic, Serbia’s prime minister, said it was a World War II German plane bomb weighing over one ton.

The bomb has been transported to a military training ground in Nikinci, northern Serbia, where it will be destroyed, Mr Dacic said.
