A secondary school in the Bratislava district of Ružinov had an exciting day on November 27, when a student brought non-functioning explosive materials to school.
The student, 17, boasted to his classmates that he had explosives in his schoolbag, so police were called to the school. They searched the school with a bomb-sniffing dog.
Police found the material and an explosives specialist determined that it was non-functioning, Bratislava police spokesperson Alena Toševová told the SITA newswire.
The student was taken to the police station and an investigator took over the case.
One student told the Nový Čas daily that the student got the material several months ago in Podunajské Biskupice, and showed it off to another student. The boys were thinking about setting off 200 grams of tritol, the most widespread army explosive, on New Year’s Eve.
According to experts, 200 grams of tritol could kill people in a radius of at least one metre if it was set off.
