Italians blow up American WWII bomb in controlled explosion


Pitigliano, January 4 - Soldiers on Friday
intervened in the Tuscan town of Pitigliano to blow up an aerial
bomb left over from the Second World War.
The 1,000-pound US-manufactured explosive was discovered on
December 18, lying on the bed of the river Fiore around 60
meters from the road.
Specialists of the Second Regiment of Bridge Engineers,
stationed in Piacenza, intervened in two stages, first
extracting the two detonators before transporting the bomb to a
safe place for a controlled explosion.
Italian bomb-disposal experts have carried out over 30,000
interventions to secure war debris including unexploded bombs
over the last 10 years.
Some 2,300 unexploded bombs were disposed of in 2012 alone.
