Polish authorities have backtracked on claims a buried German WWII ‘Ghost’ train containing gold has been found in the country. This conflicts with a statement made on Friday by Piotr Suchowski, the deputy culture minister, that he was “more than 99% certain that this train exists”. Following two weeks of speculation about a ‘gold train’ with valuables on board, officials now say the evidence is “no stronger than similar claims made in past decades,” reports the Bloomberg. “This is not the first and probably not the last signal about an incredible discovery in our surroundings,” Roman Szelemej, the mayor of Walbrzych, told TVN24 in an interview on Monday.
