The 1.5-metre (4.9-feet) -long bomb was initially thought to contain nearly 250 kilogrammes (550 pounds) of explosives, but on closer inspection was found to be a 170-kilo device.
Army chief of staff Nikos Phanios said the bomb’s firing mechanism “was still in a very good shape, and this was what had us worried.” The device was American-made he said.
