Interesting surprise: WWII munitions in a hotel

“Experts say there were no detonators and the explosives had decomposed so there was no danger of an explosion. “

I wonder what kind of "experts" they talked to. TNT decomposes into crystallized Nitroglycerin, which is very, very unstable... Edit: Oh, no, sorry, got that confused with dynamite. Sorry.
