According to RÚV, the bomb is thought to be from the Second World War.

The deactivated bomb still contained traces of explosives and was transported to a secure facility to be defused.

Every year, the EOD Unit receives between 50 and 60 calls. The EOD Unit urges anyone who finds explosives to immediately call 112.
