Baden-Württemberg: bomb disposal in Mannheim: evacuation completed

Mannheim (dpa/lsw) - The evacuation of hundreds of houses for bomb disposal in Mannheim has been completed. A spokeswoman for the city said in the afternoon that around 1,000 people had left their apartments and houses. The explosive ordnance disposal service will soon begin to defuse the 250-kilogram World War II bomb, it said. This takes about two hours.

The dud was found on Tuesday during construction work on the banks of the Neckar. All buildings within a radius of 500 meters from the site were affected by the evacuation. For the duration of the defusing, a care room was set up in a school for residents who could not stay with relatives, friends or elsewhere. Patients who were bedridden received free ambulance transport.
