Wartime bomb discovered at airport

Part of Amsterdam's Schiphol airport has been evacuated after workers unearthed a suspected Second World War bomb near its main terminal building.

Pier C at the airport was shut down for both arriving and departing flights, while military bomb disposal experts checked the suspected explosive and decided what to do with it.

The pier's closure could lead to delays and cancellations of flights, the airport said.

Workers digging near the pier, which houses many of Schiphol's departure and arrival gates, uncovered the suspected bomb.

Schiphol, just outside Amsterdam, is one of Europe's busiest aviation hubs.
