Three thousand Munich residents were forced to leave their homes on Tuesday when explosive experts in Germany detonated a 550lb World War II Bomb. The huge bomb was dropped on the city by aircraft over 60 years ago.
The bomb was found beneath the ground of a former Schwabinger 7 nightclub. Several buildings caught a blaze when the bomb went off.
Head of the team that carried out the explosion Diethard Posorski said “virtually all the window panes around the area have gone but luckily no-one was injured and that is the main thing.”
