A World War II bomb has exploded in Munich, Germany. Four people were injured and one was in critical condition. The bomb exploded while drilling for a railway tunnel. World War II ended in 1945. That means the bomb exploded 76 years later, at least.
BBC reported on Wednesday that unexploded ordnance was a common occurrence in Germany during World War II. Experts usually deactivate these bombs. However, this aerial bomb weighing 250 kg has never been found before.
Police say the bomb exploded during a tunnel near the bridge. A local witness reported seeing a pillar of smoke after loud noise. An excavator was overturned due to the explosion. It is a rare occurrence nowadays, but this bomb exploded 76 years later.
