(AP) Construction workers in the Czech Republic have made a discovery that should relieve thousands of foreigners. The reason they never heard back when they sent mail to this nation in 2001-2006 is not that they were jilted.
The reason is the mail ended up in a train tunnel.
The Czech Post said Friday that 60 postal bags of mail and parcels that were mailed from other countries were found by workers renovating the unused tunnel at a train station in the southeastern town of Breclav.
Postal spokesman Gabriel Pleska called the discovery "unprecedented" and "shocking," and said police are determined to find out who is to blame.
