WWII bomb detonated in Munich
Bomb disposal experts in Munich last night dramatically detonated a 550lb (250kg) bomb dropped from an American aircraft in World War II.
Construction workers found the bomb while demolishing an old bar. 2,500 people in its immediate radius were evacuated.
The explosion was heard across the city, reviving memories of the war. Sparks caused a fire in a nearby property.
The experts had decided it was unsafe to remove the bomb and render it safe elsewhere.
