An unexploded mine from the Second World War was removed from Rika



They could not destroy the mine at the place where it was found

An unexploded mine from the Second World War, which was discovered during construction work in the port on Rijeka, was removed and dragged towards the open sea, where it will be neutralized.

The mine was moved by divers of the special unit of the police. The action is currently going according to plan, the Rijeka civil protection headquarters announced this morning, which is coordinating the action in cooperation with the police administration of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County and other services, reports the Reje newspaper Novi list.

For safety reasons, it is not possible to move in this red zone in the city center during the campaign. After neutralization, sirens will announce the return of life in the city to normal.

Meanwhile, the center of Reka is completely empty. Some people are also expected to spend the night in the Youth Hall, where the authorities have prepared beds for around 500 people who had to leave the so-called red zone. Only a few of them spent the night there, as most of them found refuge with relatives and friends, reports the Croatian news agency Hina.

Meanwhile, the area near the port of Rijeka is closed to all road, rail, air and sea traffic, and all commercial facilities there are also closed. The headquarters of the Rijeka civil defense did not reveal the exact location of the mine for the safety of the residents, but announced that it is partially buried in the seabed.

Due to its characteristics and location, it could not be destroyed in the place where it was found, so it was deactivated in another place in the Gulf of Rhenish.
