The CIA left “explosive training material” beneath the hood of a school bus in Loudoun County, Virginia, but agents insist it never posed a threat to passengers.

The bus, used for elementary and high school students, was used by CIA agents for a training exercise at Briar Woods High School they held during spring break. They forgot the “explosive training material” was under the hood of the bus, and students returning from school vacation actually rode with it on board for a couple days, the Washington Post reported.

CIA officials said the material was used for a training session with explosives-detecting dogs and that it “did not pose a danger to passengers on the bus,” the newspaper said.

Loudoun County schools spokesman Wayde Byard said the CIA told administration officials what type of material was beneath the hood, but asked for that information to be kept from the public. Byard said it was a “putty-type” material that’s used on the battlefield and requires a special detonator, the Washington Post reported.

Byard also said bus drivers regularly check beneath the hoods before driving each day, but that the material was wedged too deeply into the engine compartment to be seen easily, the newspaper said.
