A one-tonne bomb left over from NATO bombing of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in 1999 has been safely moved out of the city of Nis. The bomb was found at a construction site of the Science and Technology Park in Nice during renovation work. The authorities were mobilized and this morning the entire population around the park was evacuated. The bomb was defused by pyrotechnicians and transported by truck out of the city. As announced by the Ministry of the Interior of Serbia, it is a 1,000 kg bomb, with 430 kg of explosive charge. The bomb will be destroyed by an underground artificial explosion, in a controlled area, the announcement states.
