Cologne’s biggest evacuation following one tonne WW2 bomb found in Germany
BERLIN: World War II secrets and remains are stilling coming forth to public time-to-time as the latest one tonne bond was found near Muelheim bridge crossing the Rhine river in Germany.
As many as 20,000 people in the German city of Cologne have been forced to leave their homes as authorities defuse a one-tonne bomb from WW2.
Schools and kindergartens – as well as the zoo – remained closed during the city’s largest post-war evacuation.
About 1,100 residents of a retirement and disability centre in the Riehl area were among those taken to safety.
