Second World War bomb discovery forces a part-closure of Amsterdam's Schiphol airport
Part of Amsterdam's Schiphol airport was evacuated today after workers unearthed a suspected Second World War bomb near its main terminal building.
The airport's Pier C was shut down for arriving and departing flights while military bomb disposal experts checked the suspected explosive and decided what to do with it.
The airport said the pier's closure could lead to delays and cancellations of flights.
The suspected bomb was uncovered early today by workers digging near the pier, which houses many of Schiphol's departure and arrival gates.
Schiphol, just outside Amsterdam, is one of Europe's busiest aviation hubs.
