During construction work in Berlin, a remnant of a bomb from the Second World War, weighing 250 kilograms, was found. Workers found the bomb shortly before noon while excavating a construction site in the Berlin neighborhood of Schmargendorf. Since the bomb did not pose an immediate threat, police forensics decided to remove it tomorrow.

The site where the unexploded bomb was found is currently cordoned off and guarded by police around the clock. For security reasons, the area is blocked within a radius of 500 meters around the bomb.

According to the police, about 7.500 people were involved in the evacuation measures and will be evacuated to the accommodation facilities that were urgently set up due to this situation.

Three kindergartens and 30 residential blocks have been affected. Once evacuation measures are completed and traffic barriers are in place, bomb disposal should begin.
