WWII Bomb Explodes on German Construction Site Injuring Four

Berlin, Germany Four people were injured when a WWII aircraft bomb exploded at a worksite near Munich's busy main train station during construction drilling for a new tunnel. According to the Munich fire brigade, one of the people was seriously injured.

The area was cordoned off and explosives experts were summoned to the site to examine the remains of the bomb, the fire brigade said. The blast causes suspension of rail travel to and from the main train station, according to rail operator Deutsche Bahn.

It is still unclear what type of bomb involved, but munitions finds dating back to WWII are not uncommon in Germany. More than 70 years after the end of the war, roughly 2,000 tons of UXO are still discovered in the country each year.
