Thousands evacuated in Budapest as WW2 bomb found





Hungarian police evacuated thousands of people in central Budapest on Tuesday where experts prepared to defuse a huge World War Two bomb found on a construction site.

The two-tonne bomb is one of the biggest found in the Hungarian capital, which was heavily bombed by the Allies during World War Two. Earlier this month another part of Budapest was evacuated after a half-tonne bomb was discovered.

About 16,000 people live in the area where the latest bomb was found, said Tamas Bansaghi, deputy mayor of the affected 9th district.
