WARSAW, Poland -- The Polish military has deployed chemical, radiation and explosives experts to a spot in southwestern Poland where a Nazi train missing since World War II could be.
Tomasz Smolarz, the governor of Lower Silesia, said Monday the aim of the work in Walbrzych is to exclude any danger for local residents. He said the experts began the technical checks Monday and will continue through Saturday.
The efforts come after two explorers claimed to have found a Nazi train trapped in a tunnel that they say could contain armaments and precious minerals.
Their claim awaits confirmation, but it has sparked hopes it could be a Nazi train laden with treasure that local legend says went missing at the end of World War II.
