Reuters reports that a World War II-era “earthquake bomb” was found on Polish shores on Friday and exploded next to a pier in the Baltic Sea.

According to the BBC, the blast took place just before 4 p.m. local time in the east of the country — in the Polish town of Bronwiemna, in Lithuania’s Jurmala and Belarus’s Kaliningrad oblast — but there were no reported injuries.

The explosive device, which was roughly 20 pounds and was a portable bomb found in the United States during World War II, is believed to have been contained in a bottle containing ink and plastic ink.

A German analyst noted that the crash and explosion in the Baltic Sea comes at a time when the possibility of a nuclear attack is on the minds of political leaders from Eastern Europe, Western Europe and the United States.

The analyst said the munitions were from the so-called “mini-nukes” program which the West armed with not only smaller-caliber conventional arms but also high-precision nuclear bombs during World War II, according to BBC.
