The bomb was found on Monday at a construction site near the freight yard. A number of roads were closed, including the busy federal highway 10. Rail traffic was also affected, such as long-distance trains from Mannheim and Heidelberg to Karlsruhe and trains from Stuttgart to Karlsruhe. Around 4,000 people had to temporarily leave their homes because of the defusing.
