WARSAW, Poland,  July 10: Authorities in eastern Poland say that a second World War II bomb has been found during road works, a day after thousands of people were temporarily evacuated to allow for the removal of the first bomb.

Anna Kowalska, spokeswoman for the town hall in Bialystok, said Monday that the bomb was found close to the site where the first bomb was removed.

Some 10,000 people were evacuated for many hours on Sunday to allow experts to remove the 500-kilogram (1,102-pound) German ST-500 bomb. It was destroyed early Monday at a military test range.
