Virginia parents have been left with quite the unsettling feeling after a deadly discovery was found on their schoolchildren’s school bus. Explosive material was on the bus with their children, but what’s worse than such a deadly discovery is how it got there.

After terrorists have used explosives to wreak havoc on the world in increasing frequency recently, the last thing a parent wants to hear is that their child was riding around on their school bus with explosive material for two days, but that’s exactly what happened in Loudoun County.

Parents and staff were left shocked by an email notifying them that explosive material had been found under the hood of a bus that children had ridden on for 2 days before it was discovered.

The explosive material was found on a Virginia school bus a week after the CIA used it in a police dog training exercise, officials have revealed.

The material was discovered inside the engine compartment of a public school bus in a Virginia suburb of Washington during routine maintenance, according to Kraig Troxell, a spokesman for Loudoun County.

The CIA conducted the training exercises from 21 March to 24 March at a school in Ashburn.
Officials said the bus returned to service on Monday this week.

In a statement, the CIA said the material was inadvertently left by the agency's K9 unit and did not pose a danger to passengers.

The inert training materials used in the exercises are "incredibly stable", it added.
Mr Troxell said the training is conducted with other local public safety and federal agencies throughout the year.

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office and the Loudoun County Fire Marshal's Office said this type of training programme has been suspended until a thorough review of procedures is completed.
