The controlled explosion took place on Friday morning, and went as planned, causing no injuries or damage, Sead Vrana of the Civil Protection Administration of Bosnia-Herzegovina's Muslim-Croat entity (FBiH) told reporters.

Local residents in Privilnica were evacuated before the bomb was destroyed.

The U.S.-manufactured MK 82 device was found during construction works in the area, and was a leftover from the 1992-95 war in Bosnia. According to media reports, this is "an exceptionally dangerous bomb" with an explosive charge weighing 100 kilograms.
