World War II bomb paralyzes trains in Luxembourg

The bomb was found by construction workers during the expansion of the capital’s railway station.

This is the second bomb that workers have discovered near the Buechler bridge this year. The first, weighing around 250 kilograms, was found back in March. The area was cordoned off for several hours, and the explosives were defused right on the spot. Over the past 20 years, the Luxembourg sapper team has defused three more shells: a 110-kilogram one and two weighing 450 kg each.

Currently, all trains have been stopped and returned to the station. It is impossible to say how long the defusal will last. It all depends on what decision the experts will make after examining the projectile.
