Workers found the in a parking lot of Fukushima No. 1 Power Plant and near reactors which previously leaked radioactive material from the 2011 tsunami that lead to the release of radioactive material.

As if Japan's Fukushima nuclear clean-up operations weren't unsafe enough, workers near the site of the former power plant, which disastrously melted down in 2011, just discovered what may be an unexploded bomb from World War II.

As reported by Daily Mail, a spokesman for Fukushima operator Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) said that the concerned authorities called in police to investigate when the 2.9 foot-long object was discovered by the workers. Noteworthy that the site is going through a four-decade long decommissioning process.

The threat came hours after President Donald Trump told Pyongyang that any threat to the U.S. would be met with "fire and fury". The island acts as an important military base for the USA in the region - being used as both an air force and a naval hub.

TEPCO immediately suspended construction work and roped off the area around 0.62 miles from the reactors, he added. Police have cordoned off the surrounding area, but the situation has not caused any effects on the decommissioning of the plant.

AFP reports that a Japanese military airport was in the area close to the Fukushima plant during World War II, and was targeted by U.S. bombers. It is considered to be the world's most serious nuclear accident since 1986's Chernobyl near the border of Ukraine.

A Japanese military airport existed in the area around the Fukushima site in northeastern Japan during the war, and the area was a target of USA bombing raids.
