Civil War bomb exploded in Tahivilla

TARIFA - A farmer in the countryside near Tarifa, at El Armachal, uncovered an explosive artifact dating back to the Spanish Civil War (1936-39) while he was ploughing a field. He was not impressed or alrmed but workers on the nearby T1 wind mills called in the Guardia Civil, whose TEDAX anti-explosive unit detonated the bomb under control at approximately 1pm yesterday. This is not the first time this kind of thing happens in that area as such artifacts, containing their explosives intact, have been found before. (Photo: EuropaSur)
