An old aircraft bomb was unearthed on the grounds of the secondary vocational school of hotel services and commerce in the Bratislava borough of Rača on Monday, April 22, the TASR newswire learned. The bomb is said to date back to the Second World War.

"Apparently it's an old and yet unexploded ammunition. The area has been cordoned off by the police, and bomb disposal experts are on their way," said the school's headmistress Mária Katreniaková. The bomb was found during digging work on an extension of the existing water pipeline for the school. "There was no need to evacuate the school, as the finding doesn't jeopardise the school's building – and the classes were over anyway. The dorm is under no threat either, but some restrictions are in place where students, staff or other people are allowed to go," said Katreniaková.
