The shells, which were found underneath Zelazna street in the vicinity of Grzybowska and Chlodna streets, “are most likely from the Second World War,” said Iwona Jurkiewicz from the capital’s police HQ.

The find is not the first in the area. In July, sewer workers found two unexploded bombs on the same street.

The Warsaw bomb squad is one of the most busy in the country, being called out a few dozen times a year. Most of the unexploded items date from World War II, including artillery shells, grenade mortars, aerial bombs and mines. (jb)
