Traffic was banned.

Bomb disposal engineers removed the fuse from the US-made device, which the military said contained 240 kilograms (530 lb) of explosives, then carried with the police about 45 km (30 mi) away and destroyed it. Giving information on Sunday, military experts said that earlier the 450 kg (1,000 lb) bomb was controlled and destroyed.
