Pyrotechnics experts at Vrbětice munitions depot expecting demanding night

Work on clearing the Vrbětice munitions depot continues unabated through the New Year holidays in view of preparing the ground for the transport of undamaged munitions to a new site in mid-January. Some 150 soldiers are guarding the area and experts have asked locals in the vicinity to refrain from using fireworks on New Years’ Eve. No uncontrolled explosions have taken place at the site for several days now.
