Sunday, 11 April 2010 08:58 AM

TEL AVIV - The Tel Aviv municipality unveiled the city's new large-scale public bomb shelter Wednesday, built under the new Habima Theater.

The advanced shelter, at 3,740 square meters, can hold as many as 1,600 people over four floors. There are five doors leading in, leading to five stairwells spanning through the four floors of the shelter.

Next to the official bomb shelter an underground garage will provide a further 35,000 square meters. Although the garage will not be fortified, it will still prove a better option than the outdoors in case of an attack.
