People are killed in terrorist attacks on the day of arrival in Bangladesh. A bomb weighing 250 kg was found at the airport in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. The bomb is being claimed to be from the time of World War II or the Liberation War. The bomb was found during an excavation at the third terminal of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka on Wednesday. The Inter Service Public Relations (ISPR) gave this information in a statement.


According to the Bangladeshi media report, after the officials received information about it, a bomb disposal squad of Bangabandhu base of Bangladesh Air Force was sent there and neutralized the blast. ISPR said experts identified it as a bomb dropped from the air. According to them, this bomb was dropped in the year 1971.

ISPR, media and the Bangladesh Armed Forces news agency reported that the workers first noticed a cylinder-like bomb buried in three meters of girai on Wednesday morning. A wartime bomb weighing around 250 kg was recovered from the construction site of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka.

Similarly, bombs of World War II are often found in Germany. More recently, the so-called earthquake bomb was found near the German-Polish border in October, but the latest case of bombing in Frankfurt was detected at a construction site. During World War II, Allied forces regularly bombed Frankfurt, devastating Germany’s largest Middle Ages city and killing more than five thousand people. In late February of this year, a wartime bomb was found near the construction site close to the temple and hotel in Happy Valley, Hong Kong.
