Unexploded WWII bomb defused on new NATO HQ site
Brussels: Belgian police and NATO say an unexploded bomb has been uncovered and defused on the construction site of the alliance`s new headquarters building near Brussels airport.
The bomb is the second to be found there in less than a month. The airfield was repeatedly bombed during World War II, initially by the Nazis and later by the Allies.
Construction on the project broke ground in October and is scheduled for completion by 2015. NATO`s new home will be situated across the street from its current offices.
A US-Belgian consortium designed the new, state-of-the-art headquarters consisting of eight wings, converging in a vast, glass-covered central hall.
Officials say the wings symbolise the allies coming together, while the glass walls are supposed to represent NATO`s transparency.
