    World War II-era American bomb detonated in evacuated area of central Munich - NY Daily News

    Munich firefighters deal with the fiery aftermath of the deliberate detonation of the remains of a 550-pound World War II bomb located under a building in central Munich. Efforts to defuse the bomb failed and experts decided to pack it with explosives and detonate it rather than risk an uncontrolled explosion.

    You could still find chemical munitions or residues in the area of Verdun.

    Chemical ammunitions in live 20 years in earth lose the properties. And shells with a trotyl are dangerous right through life.

    Echoes of war... 10 January 2013. In Sevastopol destroyed 250-kg the fugass air bomb January 31, 2013. In the Bay of Sevastopol destroyed 500 kg and 250 kg of German bombs. On the territory of Ukraine, Belarus and the European part of Russia, such "toys" find almost every day. On the small weight 50-100 kg, in the news is not even reported. And you say - Munich
