No clearance of former munitions stockpile in sight

The residents of Mitholz in canton Bern will have to wait until at least mid 2020 to hear how the army proposes to dispose of 3,500 tonnes of munitions.

In July 2018, residents of the mountain village were shocked to find out that an ammunition storage site that had exploded 70 years earlier, could still present a danger to the public. The people who live here feel that action isn't being taken quickly enough, and they're worried about the future. (SRF/swissinfo.ch)
