WW2 bomb found in Budapest deactivated

A 120kg bomb dating to the second world war found at the free port of Csepel, in southern Budapest, was deactivated on Tuesday, a communications officer of the Hungarian army's bomb disposal squad said.

The bomb had ignition devices at both ends and therefore had to be deactivated before removal, Milan Gajdos said. An exclusion zone with a radius of 300 metres was set up in the area around Szikrataviro Street, he added.
