Six unexploded bombs found on work site near Iasi International Airport

Six unexploded bombs were discovered yesterday morning by the people working on the lengthening of the Iasi International Airport’s airstrip from 1,800 meters to 2,400 meters. According to Emergency Situations Inspectorate (ISU) representatives quoted by Agerpres, the unexploded aviation bombs dating back to the Second World War have weights that vary from 70 to 250 kilograms. “A safety zone of five kilometres will have to be assured. Then the bomb squad and the ISU specialists will identify several plots of land where the unexploded bombs will be safely detonated. The bombs will be destroyed in pairs, through several detonations,” the ISU representatives stated. Two other aviation bombs, weighing 35 to 70 kilograms, were found on Tuesday evening by workers on the same site.
