Four objects found near Old Bridge in Bratislava, one likely a mine
30 Jul 2014 Flash News
A SONAR inspection has revealed that four suspect objects are buried below the riverbed near the pillars of the dismantled Old Bridge in Bratislava and that one of them resembles a mine, Bratislava Mayor Milan Ftáčnik said July 29.
The reconstruction work on the Old Bridge was suspended in June due to fears that bombs from World War II may be located close to the structure. The object that resembles a mine has been found on the bottom of the Danube River, around 30 metres from pillar five, which is closer to the Petržalka side and was planned to be preserved as part of the renovated structure.
Ftáčnik also said, according to the SITA newswire, that on the site where a new pillars three and four are, no suspect items have been found.
