Unexploded Shell WWII Found in Polish PM's Office Building


Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk and 150 government employees were forced to flee their offices Tuesday when an unexploded shell leftover from World War II was found in the building.

Workers renovating part of the building uncovered the shell.

Bomb squad officers removed the explosive and no one was hurt.

Old bombs and shells which failed to explode during the war frequently turn up in Warsaw.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP and Reuters.
