In the past month, several suspected explosive devices have been found at malls and department stores in Durban. Just a few weeks ago, one such device was located in the Woolworths in the Gateway Mall. On Thursday, another possible bomb was found at a Durban Woolworths store in the CBD.
The bomb squad was called out immediately and managed to safely disarm the device and clear the area. According to Hawks’s spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi, the device has since been taken in for testing.
