Helsinki During the blasting work of the metro work tunnel, windows and one shop window of the shop were broken on Wednesday at Sörnäisten rantatie 6. There were no injuries.
Shortly before 4 pm, a bang was blown up at the construction site of the Hakaniementori metro tunnel, breaking the guardrail fence for about three meters and the window of ten apartments in the opposite house, as well as one of Elanto’s chemical shop windows. The top of the broken windows was on the fifth floor.
Mrs. Anneli Lassila, whose apartment window was broken the worst, said that she had read and shaken the noise caused by the explosion. After that, stones had come through the window.
‘”Fortunately, our son, who was playing under the window during the day, was playing next door. The damage could have been much worse if he had been left under the shattering screen, ”said Mrs. Lassila.
“There was a huge hum and then banged stones on the window. Fragments of the window bounced along the floor of the movement. Fortunately, I was alone in the shop, so personal injury was avoided. The goods were not damaged either, ”said Anja Packalén, a chemical store assistant.
The construction site did not want to comment on what happened.
Martinlaakso stations also for metro use

Martinlaakso stations are designed for the so-called of the sideline type and are ‘metric’ in nature. The sizing of the stations is looser due to the difference in size between the train and metro equipment.

Homosexuals on the freedom march
About 5,000 people, including several pairs of boys and girls walking together, marched in New York from Greenwich Village to Central Park in a demonstration that supported the gay liberation movement.
The demonstration ended a week of remembrance held in memory of the Greenwich Village uprising against homosexual police two years ago.
The demonstration went without incident. The cops smiled, though I turned my head when the call was heard, “Hey, hey, look like this, sometimes try the other way around.”
Some of the marchers already had the target high, as one sign read, “Next year … Washington.”
