Simicskó said the four victims, all in their 30s, would be declared heroes and nominated for the defence minister’s highest award.

The accident, which happened at a former bombing range, was caused by a 250kg WW2 bomb, the minister said.

Further investigations into causes of the accident are under way.

President János Áder voiced his condolences to families and friends of the victims in a statement.

“Those that gave their lives today did so to ensure security for all of us, to save the lives of other people,” the president wrote.
