Second World War Massive 1.8 Tonne British Bomb Defused


BERLIN – German bomb disposal experts have successfully defused a 1.8-tonne unexploded second World War bomb dropped on the city of Koblenz by British during the Second World War, after a scare which forced the evacuation of about half of the 107,000 residents. 

Germany is littered with unexploded US and British bombs but the British aerial mine defused yesterday was one of the biggest found in the country, and the alert caused Germany's biggest bomb-related evacuations since the war. 

Some 2,500 police officers, firefighters and paramedics were on duty across the city to secure the operation.
