World War 2 Bomb Found At German Airport

The discovery of an unexploded World War II bomb at
Dusseldorf Airport, Germany led to the cancellation of seven flights this
morning. The airport spokesman, Christian Hinkel, said that the ordnance, which
was found overnight near the runway of Germany’s third largest airport, was
safely detonated by bomb disposal experts.
“Two departures and five arrivals were cancelled during the
controlled explosion,’’ Hinkel said, adding that the airport operations were
otherwise unaffected.
Sandbags were heaped around the site to dampen the force of
the blast, he added.
However, unexploded bombs dating back to the aerial
bombardments of Germany during World War II are still frequently found. Many
local authorities have teams working full-time to detect and defuse them.
The biggest evacuation in Germany since the end of the war
took place in 2011, when 45,000 people were forced to temporarily leave parts
of Koblenz for the disposal of an unexploded Allied bomb.
