A 15-year old boy found two small World War II bombs and took them with him at home.
This led to the evacuation on Friday of Trejqet il-Liedna in Santa Luċija. At around 8.15pm the Police received a report from the boy’s father that his son took home two bombs he found outside.
A Police spokesperson told TVM that the boy found the bombs near the barracks at Għajn Tuffieħa.
As a precautionary measure, the police evacuated nearby residents while AFM explosive section officers went on site.
The residents were allowed to return to their home after the situation was under control. No one was injured in the incident.
