Some 13,000 locals in the German city of Frankfurt have had to be evacuated this Sunday after the breakthrough of a wwii half ton bomb.
The British-made bomb has ultimately been deactivated, the Frankfurt Hearth Department explained on Twitter. “The barriers in the danger zone happen to be raised,” the agency stated.
British bombs feature a mechanical detonator, so they are classified while very dangerous. This one in particular was initially discovered Thursday during a construction web page.
The evacuees who had nowhere to travel, about 300, have been housed inside the city’s Convention Center. All of them have obtained a temperature taken and have were required to wear a mask permanently to stop contagion of coronavirus, explained a good spokesman for the Red Cross, Armin Bender.
